Just wondering ...

The majority of my day has been spent wondering:

... what happened to the people of America that made this choice seem like a viable option.

... how this decision will affect me, my family, my friends and the world.

... how the next 12, 24, 48, 96 (?) months are going to play out.

... how the press can play every single one us like puppets, deceive us so greatly, yet sit safe and pretty claiming "freedom of speech".

I wondered a lot today; but most of all I wondered what happened to that glowing, wonderful feeling that I had in my heart from the weekend. Standing on the bare hillside, the sunset warm on my face, the North Wind cold on my neck, the air clean, the heather thick, the colours rich. The feeling in my heart that was so rich and pure. A pure, absolute joy.

Today it is gone. Today it is cold.

A toast, to tomorrow // LL
