Today is the day

wow. after 2 years of constant speculation. it’s finally here. i don’t see how i’m going to sleep tonight until i know. i remember in 2000 staying up so late, then going to sleep, turning on the tv in the morning, expecting to hear an answer…and didn’t.

the voting booth is THIS way.

i have cnn and npr on at the same time. i can’t even help myself. i waited an hour in line today, and was happy to wait. i couldn’t believe it. in 2004 i just waltzed in, there was barely anyone there (and i went in the morning!). not the case today. i feel everyone in line was quiet, anxious, ready to go in and help steer the course of america.

big line!  hurray!

hopefully tomorrow we will have a new president. and a new era of this country can begin, we can hopefully break this 8 year stretch of ineptitude, mediocrity, and selfish special interests. let’s hope.

mural in the school i voted in.  fitting i think today
