« My Drawn-Out, Photo Heavy Birthday | Main | Dirty Sheep »

Couldn't and didn't blog yesterday. It's just too much, too sad. And I don't know about you, but as an American I feel directly responsible in a small way. Even though I voted against him, even though I stand for everything he is trying to pull apart, I still live in this country and am counted as a citizen and pay his salary. America's actions in the past three years have guaranteed that this kind of atrocity will continue to happen. Just a question of when and where, and that's a hard thing to comprehend.

Aargh. It's too difficult to write about, and what do my small words mean, anyway? I meant to give you something light and upbeat today, the day after, something bright and hopeful. But I'm having a hard time thinking of anything that's not rather bleak.

So it's time to pull out the big guns. Isn't that what Americans do, after all?

Doesn't the angle make them look small? Or is it that my little wheel is so big in these photos? Whatever, they do my heart good.

Love someone hard today. Okay?

* I have closed comments on this post, since I saw them going in the direction of heated argument. While that may be amusing on another day, I don't feel like arguing today. Peace, all. Now, go knit. Mwah.
