Well, that (the election) turned out relatively well, at least as compared with the previous three general elections.
The feeling I'm left with is more relief than elation, relief that the sails of the ship that has been carrying us toward disaster are now hanging limp, denied the strong winds that were previously filling them. We're still on that ship and it's still pointed in the same directon, but it has at least paused along that course.
This is a time for renewal: new projects (and new support for old-but-worthy ones), new hope, new commitment.
This is a time for living as though there might still be a future.
