dawning of the age

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation


no doubt about it, this will be a day that will go down in history. probably the first of at least 4 years that will do just that, really. it's such an emotional thing for me- this inauguration. not mania-type emotional, more like a proud relative watching someone they know doing really well for themselves.

i am so happy that there is a rumbling in the streets that resembles hope. it's fairly tactile really. i can feel the energy, i can hear the low roar of excitement that is emanating from almost anywhere i turn.

my belief is that this is destined to be a decade to remember for america, if not the world. and i also firmly believe that this is destiny and is a little eerie. i'm along for the ride for sure, and i intend to take picture once in awhile, too.

children, teens, young adults, blacks, whites, natives, latinos, asians, professionals, blue collars, retired citizens, rural folks, and urban wizards, all holding a single intention in their hearts. amazing in and of itself, but more so when realized its due to the motivation and inspiration from one singular life force.

way to go america... way to go... or should i say here we go...

ps- please don't think i am expecting too much. i honestly hope i'm not that naive. but what i am working on here is hoping for too much. it's been so long since i've had the luxury of hoping too much. and i am indulging as much as i can.

today's sound choice is the 5th dimension with "aquarius/let the sunshine in" from the musical "Hair"

I feel the same way and I don't think either of us is naive enough to expect instant perfection, but isn't it glorious to actually feel hope!
