on my second week of a two-week holiday

weather couldn't be finer

anna and i took a long walk thru midtown among the trees and falling leaves

walked to a local cafe for a long leisurely lunch

ate too much

burned it off by taking a long refreshing siesta

was up to three this morning watching the returns and analyses of the election

with the result of the election would it were be a cause for hope?

i don't expect miracles

it'll be another rough four years

and yet last night was a proof of the changing dynamics and complexion of this country

it was 20 years ago that i felt the same kind of optimism when clinton took office

then things did get better  -- for a while

i think the best, sweetest piece of writing about the election is from alex gildzen

there is hope in here somewhere
