I’m a bit giddy about it all.
The Bay area is all aflutter today and it feels like a holiday, like we shouldn’t be working but instead parading in the streets or feasting together and banging on pots and pans. As we drank champagne last night with friends and cried and hugged each other, it felt more like New Years eve than election day.
I’m sure not all of you voted for Obama, but I hope that we can all be inspired by his message of hope and our shared vision for a more peaceful world. I thought McCain’s speech last night was very gracious.
I will be crying many tears of joy today; every time I hear Obama’s acceptance speech I am so moved…I hope you are celebrating with me and feeling the excitement of this new day. Off to go bang on some pots and pans!
