Victory Tonight Feels Like Fresh Air

It is difficult to describe my feelings right now.

No it’s not.

I’m elated.  I’m not just elated.  I’m SO MOTHERFUCKING HAPPY I WANT TO DITCH MY BODY IN A FIELD OF LONG GRASSES AND LET THE STICKERS STICK AND THE LIGHT SHINE THROUGH MY SKIN AND WALLOW IN THIS WONDERFUL TINY MOMENT – THIS SMALL VICTORY AND THE TASTE OF HOPE IT SHEDS IN THE DARK CORNERS OF MY STATE, ON MY COUNTRY, AND LET THE AIR FRESHEN SICKNESS TO HEALTH…

Tonight Obama won a second term as President of the United States.

I am hopeful for the country my son will become an adult in.

I’m never going to stop crushing on Michelle Obama.

Motherfucker.

    Remember all those months ago when I told you you had nothing to worry about ??

    But worry you did !!

    I couldn’t wait for this day for you !!

      You were so right – I just couldn’t stop the worrying and hand wrining. You totally called it! Are you pleased with the election results too? I miss lots of things about Orygone – like the weather! – and the people like you who are awesome – and the gorgeous landscape. I’ve missed hearing from you – it’s been so long. Is all well in your world?

        Things are all fine here….after all that sunshine we had July-September, the colorless fall rains are here. I tell everybody its like living in a black and white TV set !!

        I will never endure a rainy, dark, cold day in Oregon without thinking about you and how you loved them so.

        I am delighted with the election results, and most delighted with the black eye Karl Rove and the whole Fox news world took. This was the one day of the year i could not wait to watch Fox, and watch them explain away a year of lying to their viewers !!

        Still Grinning
