HELLLLOOO AMERICA!! We are going to ROCK this world!!

What an amazing night it was. Getting together with friends, eating and drinking Champagne, clapping, cheering, crying. Seeing Jesse Jackson weep, watching people in NY and Chicago fall to the ground with joy and relief, and listening to John Lewis who sounded stunned. I think he was having a hard time even talking. When he worked so hard during the civil rights movement, he probably couldn't even imagine this night would come. The young people and people of color will forever have their say.


And now---

It IS a beautiful morning indeed...





I feel like dancing in the streets...







And then I want to lie beneath a shady tree and think about how much I love my country...

Thesee videos are absolutely perfect!
What a night that was. (I'm exhausted and still wound up.) (Election hangover, not caused by alcohol!)

How good it was to spend the evening with great friends. Thank you.

I feel the same way. Had a hard time going to sleep and a hard time staying asleep.

What a great night! And it is a beautiful morning!! And thank God/Buddha/Allah/Yahweh/Higher Power we live in the kind of country where Martha & the Vandellas can sum up our feeling so perfectly!
