Jan. 21

When I woke up this morning at about 5 a.m. , I didn’t realize that I would have such an emotionally exhausting day. I started early watching the day, on my iPad. I call this a 5 tissue day .I cried a lot. Lady Gaga’s rendition of the National Anthem was wonderful. Seeing the past Presidents together was wonderful. Seeing  President Biden with a trail of Grandchildren , as he and the family made that traditional walk to the White House, was wonderful. Seeing  Vice President Harris ,proudly representing all women, was wonderful. Seeing that  skinny, black girl,Amanda Gorman,  a graduate of Harvard, raised by a single Mom,present her poem to America, was wonderful.  ( p.s. Anderson Cooper has a terrific interview with her on CNN).Actually, that shot of the Biden’s and Kamala Harris and her husband standing at the reflection pool, with the symbolic lights made me change the back ground on my iPad to that. To me ,it was like a long held breath being let out. I loved my day.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
