It was voting day today. I expected long lines but there was only one person ahead of me and that was Leslie. We got checked in, was handed a paper ballot and we went into the little booths and prayed that the marks we made on that ballot make a difference. God knows we need a change in this country.
We couldn't have asked for a better day, bright, sunny, warm and we don't even think about the ice and snow that they are predicting 3 days from now. I take advantage of the warmth and sit on the balcony to dry my hair. I watch the cell tower as I pull the brush through my hair.... There is no sign that the osprey are back. But, they will be soon.....
I am reading "Four Seasons In Rome" by Anthony Doerr. A true story about he and his wife's year in Rome. They arrive with 6 month old twins and some of the story is of their day to day struggles and joys. Some of it is so descriptive of the history, the culture, the life's blood of Rome. And, I ache to go there.
And, oh, do I ache to write like Mr. Doerr does. But, that will never happen!!
I hope that if your state is in the throes of Super Tuesday that you will go to the polls and vote. It matters very much that you do what you can.
