Still Sobbing

6 November 2008

It’s probably the new hormones.

But I heard an interview yesterday with an American Citizen abroad in Mexico who said she had been in Grant Park 40 years ago under very different circumstances and that she was experiencing waves of powerful emotions after Obama’s election and speech there on Tuesday. She said if felt as if she were letting go of decades of pain and shame and anger. Tears wouldn’t stop coming and there were layers of grief woven through the elation.

I understand me tears in a new way now and it seems like there aren’t enough.

And just when I got myself under control… I got this email from our friend David, one of our favorite humans, which included a video he shot from his apartment in Union Square NYC right after Obama’s acceptance speech…. it captures an amazing moment…

…and there I go again.

Be well,
