I’m grateful to all the hard working and honest people who worked at the polls, counted votes, and certified elections. Bureaucrats are underappreciated, underpaid, and often abused by politicians and constituents alike, but they are the what makes our democracy work. I’m grateful for sneakers. And I’m grateful for a few days off. A much needed time to reflect.
I’m grateful for the shift in energy…like that first bump in the descent after a long flight. You know you’re close now….I’m grateful the election is not far off. I’m grateful to awaken to cloudy, cool skies and to have the doors open during the day, and the fan on at night. Such a relief to sleep with fresh air.
