A bit bloody wasted for an actual entry right now. Maybe later. Day off today, and tomorrow, too. No Boston today, but we should make it up tomorrow. Mostly, I need to just lie on the sofa and read and nap and rest and get ready for all I have to do in November. Yesterday, a very, very rough sort of non-writing work day, but it was mostly my fault that it was so rough. And I realized I'd not yet even sent the ms. for The Red Tree to my agent and editor, though I thought I had. Anyway...



* President-Elect Barack Obama

One of my friends posted that image this morning, and I know it's supposed to be amusing, but it made me sob like a baby. Today is a very good day.

I think there's a definite bittersweetness to it.

So many didn't live to see this. But so many others have. And a generation will be born during the administration of an African-American president.

We were saying that as happy as progressive white people are about this, African-Americans — especially those who lived through the movement in the '60s, those who remember when black people couldn't even vote — must be on Cloud 9 today. The dream is no longer deferred.
