I’m tired, and feeling just about as blurred as the bird in this photo, skillfully evading my every attempt at focusing my lens. January 20 is a big day – one that will hopefully emerge with clearly outlined purpose, high energy, and minimal blur. I’m hoping for contrast to what has transpired – rich, exuberant contrast.
Are you celebrating, or just cautiously optimistic? Or neither? Neighbors up and down our block will gather in the street after work, for a suitable beverage and some socially distant rejoicing, to ring in the long-awaited changing of the guards. Whether this bird will join us remains to be seen, but if it comes, I will regard it as a good omen. I think we’re all relieved. Four years are finally over , and it’s time for a new beginning. Don’t know about you, but we’re flipping the old, and welcoming the new.
