Today and Tomorrow

Lots of angry rhetoric and grieving and unanswered questions and gloating and name-calling and labeling of entire groups of people still going on via social media- am I successfully making the point that people on both sides of this election are being uncharitable, selfish and not listening to each other?

I've lived through a few genuine life-changing tragedies and you probably have too. Do you remember the utter shock of discovering that everything in your personal world had changed and yet the physical world just went on about its business, as if you were the one point in the entire universe that was not moving while everything else just streamed past you?

Tomorrow can be a word of either despair or hope.

Macbeth soliloquizes: "To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death."

But Annie sings: "Tomorrow, tomorrow, the sun will come out tomorrow... I love you tomorrow, you're only a day away."

Here was yesterday's tomorrow- sunrise




And so... to morrow.

In a topic completely unrelated to the election, I don't feel very good, and am heading to bed early. Nothing serious, but I need sleep.

And tomorrow, so much as it is in our power, will be as negative or positive as we make it. Squelch negativity, latch on to the... wait, there might be a song in there somewhere!

I wonder if and when the people currently still freaking out will stop...

Don't you think people have freaked out in previous elections? I know I have. Let's go back to my 4th grade mock election--I was the ONLY kid to vote mcGovern. *sigh*

Get over it, people. Grow up, accept that more than 1 or 2 people elected this person and work towards making this good green Earth a better place to live on a smaller scale.

Perhaps the season of "full of sound and fury and signifying nothing" is over. I can only hope it is.

I don't get why everyone has to be all up in arms over who won the election. It's over so now it's the time to band together and support the winner. A nice concept that too many will never do.
Love the photos.
Feel better soon
