Although I am a very political person by nature, I have purposely avoided discussing politics on this blog because there is no place for it here. Still, I find it impossible not to mention the monumental events of the past few days, and the tremendous sense of awe and relief that the election has brought. Even all the way up here in rural Maine, most of the people I have spoken with over the last few days have been incredibly moved and jubilant.
My friend Rik sent me this link from his blog showing the spontaneous rally that erupted in my old neighborhood, Union Square, NYC, right after Obama was declared the winner. I wish I had been there.
