What’s On My Mindgrapes

in case you were curious


You best be voting.

What an exciting time. As I write this, it’s late in my work day; I’ve had a few productive moments, but most of today has been spent trying to find any sort of actual update about the election. It’s far too early to tell, but maybe by the time you read this, we’ll know what happened. And whether we’re happy or sad.

I voted at 7:15 this morning at the Unitarian Universalist Church a few blocks away. I stood in line with a lot of other young professionals, some couples, a few dogs and babies. I passed the time (nearly an hour) reading The Yiddish Policemen’s Union and eavesdropping on others’ conversations. I felt very relaxed and patient because I knew I was doing something important. And I knew being late to work wasn’t a big deal.

So, if you haven’t voted and are reading this in time, please go vote! I don’t care who for! Be proud to be an American, which is difficult to remember sometimes when considering our reputation in some parts of the universe, or the state of the current economy, or whatever else makes you feel disappointed. Your vote can help change that!

I’m posting this widget with no telling of what color it will be tomorrow. Here’s to hope.
