After being up all Tuesday night and all day Wednesday watching election returns, victory speeches, concession speeches and transition speeches, I thought I might wake up this morning and find it all a bad dream. Alas...not. There will be a time to regroup and rethink, to pick which battles to fight and to re-energize. There will hopefully be a time not to be sad and angry, not to be puzzled by people's choices, not to be embarrassed to be an American. Alas...today isn't that day.
So, I think today's the time to gaze on something beautiful, step back and ponder the big picture. Yes, the sun came up today (well, sort of...it's cloudy and rainy here) and it will continue to come up regardless of who sits in the Oval Office. I can't change that; what I can change is what I choose to see. Today I choose to see beauty.
I think it's going to take more than one day of this to re-focus my vision and truly see the big picture!
