yes, yes and yes again

After 8 long, horrifying years, I can say out loud that I'm an American.
I can finally say it with no sense of irony or shame.
My faith has been restored. The majority of voters in the U.S are good, intelligent people.

He's my president, but he's globally elected. Look at him. Bill Moyers said "He's got the bloodlines of the whole world running in his veins."
He's the face of what America really looks like.

In all of the eight consecutive national elections that I've participated in, Barak Obama is the first winning candidate I ever had the privilege to vote for who was my first choice, not a weary compromise of some kind.

He's my generation.
For the first time, I too have a representative, a voice in government.

Here in Portland, the downtown streets were spontaneously flooded with jubilant celebrants after his speech. Everyone was crying and hugging and whooping and laughing.
In my entire life, I have never ever ever seen such a thing after an election.
In Washington D.C., people literally danced and sang "Obama!" outside the gates of the White House.
I pictured that little man who has been pretending to run things inside, and actually felt sorry for him. Briefly anyway. A flash of sadness, and then I just felt joy.
That evil, lazy, lying bum is OUT of there.

I might as well be in an alternate universe. My country has changed its metaphor and eased around a corner. A great weight has lifted.
The dreadful history of slavery and guilt that has darkened the landscape has been flooded with a blinding light.
In the inner landscape of people's hearts, everyone can stretch and breathe and say yes.
In the fearfulness of terrible times, we have a president who is the best of who we are, and he, like the country, says no to what has gone before.

Waking up with nagging cynicism and bitterness every day for such a long time has been more exhausting than I'd ever admitted. I really have never known what hope for my country, my family, my neighbors, my fellow citizens could feel like.

"Twas grace that brought us here thus far, and grace will beat us home."
It's euphoria. Amazing sweet.
Jesus, I'm happy.

Yes, she did.

I have been swinging wildly between weeping and grinning like a drunk monkey all day.

I just found my little flowerpress with a post-it note stuck to it saying "October 08. Don't open til December" and inside, a wee purple flower.

Then I found this thread that hadn't been opened for a while either.

This morning I found a feather. I picked it up ragged, and stroked it until it was smooth. It was velvet black, soft and shiny with blue and purple and brown. It wasn't very long, but it was very wide, and I spent all morning carrying it, careful not to lose it, running my fingers along the vane which was extraordinary like alien silk.

Then I left it by accident in the library. It was an hour later when I got back and it wasn't on the desk where I had left it, nor on the floor, nor anywhere I could see. I was so very upset about losing my beautiful feather that I didn't want to leave without it, so as a last resort I asked the librarian if she had seen a black feather - and yes, she had found it and put it aside in case someone had lost it. It was a very, very big happy
Now I have my beautiful feather on my desk to remind me of beautiful things like serendipity and feathers.
