When I was young and full of grace and spirited, a rattlesnake

R.E.M. in Santiago last night:

("I Believe," from one of my favorite R.E.M. albums, the whole of which is very fitting today)

Yesterday, I voted for change, and today I am inspired, excited and full of hope for our country. As I poured my coffee, I found myself thinking about what I could specifically do to get involved in what lies ahead.

As one inspiring man was quoted as saying in our local paper, "I hope everybody can say, ‘What can I do?' instead of ‘What do I get?'"

[thanks c]

His speech last night was one of the most inspiring things I've seen in my short lifetime. It's nice to hear a man speak like he actually cares about the people of the country. I hope some change will actually happen and not just politics as usual.
