05 November 2008

was election day.
so I wrote in blue to bolster my hopes for one Barack Obama.

the air felt like approaching holidays,
like Thanksgiving and warm foods and such.

it was a new day after a night of uncomfortable dreaming.

i drove to Macrina before breakfast and picked up whole wheat cider bread, rustic potato bread and a turkey-shaped brown sugar cookie decorated with orange and brown frosting from a girl in opaque yellow tights. the warm bakery was abuzz with excitement not only at the soon-to-be-eaten pastry but for the soon-to-be-decided election.

i only wanted to revel in the November chill and light.

i hoped our country would move in the right direction.

i hoped Americans would make the right decision.

i hoped.
and we did.
