The Morning After

November 7th, 2012 → 8:28 am

    “The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
    Chequering the eastern clouds with streaks of light;
    And darkness fleckled like a drunkard reels
    From forth day’s pathway, made by Titan’s wheels.” – Romeo and Juliet

I have to admit, I am much relieved.  I was truly worried Romney would win and appoint crazy judges to the Supreme Court and who knows what would happen to abortion, campaign finance, and so many other important issues…  But I can relax this morning.  And take a deep breath.  And admit that while our country still has a lot of issues to deal with, at least we didn’t make things worse yesterday.

Congratulations President Obama.

    And then, from hour to hour, we rot and rot;
    And thereby hangs a tale.” – As You Like It

    “These arms of mine shall be thy winding-sheet;
    My heart, sweet [mother], shall be thy sepulcher,
    For from my heart thine image ne’er shall go.” – Henry VI, Part III

“Anne” is the Turkish word for mother.  And I used to call my mother that, especially at times of sincerest endearment.  Today, November 2, is the anniversary of my mother’s death.  I will be spending it with my son on a field trip to an ecology center with his day care.  This seems eminently appropriate; mourn one generation while caring for the next.  I just hope my son doesn’t notice any sadness in mommy today…
