Inauguration day

In just a few hours, we'll have a new President here in the USA. It feels sort of like "the dawning of the Age of Aquarius" . . . in a way I've never experienced in my lifetime. Despite the sucky economy, the wars, and all the bad stuff, people are very hopeful that President Obama will be able to lead us through it.

Despite the above, I'm not very motivated to write much today because early this morning, we got the call that S's father passed away. This was not unexpected, but certainly that doesn't make it any easier. However, I have been asked to celebrate rather than to mourn.

So let today be a celebration! Of hope, of idealism, of the future . . . and the past, also.
