Ours was an excused hiatus. The semi-annual migration between Texas and Minnesota consumes more energy than you might think. Usually takes us about a week or so to adjust to the new humidity. Did you know you can see Mexico from Mount Bonnell?
This season, the trip had unintended consequences. We had to quit watching political news for four days straight. That’s cold turkey.
We are still on the wagon. But we wander the house looking for something that isn’t there. When we do turn on the news, our old familiar friends are still there talking too loud, but it’s just not the same.
I think I’ll take up the guitar. Poetry, maybe.
Soon enough, we'll learn whether Obama is as good at governing as he is at campaigning. For the sake of our nation, I hope so. And that's what the polls are showing. There is more hope afoot in the nation since the election.
Thus far, Obama has taken the high road. But the wingnuts still campaign with angry, racially charged emails. Sinister stuff. Give it a rest. Daunting problems ahead. Daunting.
Maybe I'll take up the drums, too.
