the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year

there's been illness, for our families and our friends. there's been death. there's been bad news, bad news and more bad news. there's been big stress. there's been strained relationships. plus the general badness in the world. and then studs terkel died.

kateri wrote this last night:

"seriously? he lived for so long, i almost thought it was permanent.

am hereby reclaiming the remainder of 2008 for the forces of good.
there are two months to go, and we're not going to make it unless i do.
do you have any sage? if you do, burn it. burn it everywhere. in the
yard, in the house, in the car, in the office."

hear, hear i say. take back 2008! start tuesday. VOTE! its a start.

be the change.

oh, the horror! (the final chapter)

this morning i watched the deaths of ian stone. it had arrived from netflix on friday and i hadn't opened the envelope. i actually think it was one of my favorite horror movies that i watched this month.

i'm done for awhile. i don't think my brain can take anymore blood and guts, murder and dismemberment.

a new feeling

my first election was clinton's second and although i adored him still, he had already disappointed me. i was no longer the 17 year old who stood in a crowd, on a freezing day, to shake his hand and had stuffed envelopes for his campaign in 1992.

when i watched barack obama give the keynote address at the 2004 democratic national convention in awe. i thought he was going to make a great president someday. and here we are...

someone i believed in won. someone who i actually think can affect change won. someone, a real person, not just a character on the west wing, made me believe in this country again.

yes we did, mr. president. and yes we will.
