I have pondered all day today what I should post about the election. But I have learned my logic is highly affected by my emotional state at the time, regardless of how rational I think I am being. This is, of course a feature of our brains.
So any insights or opinions would likely be highly skewed by my desire to finish harvest. And my granddaughter's hospitalization (not serious, but hassling). And our effort to finish Aaron's house in time for Thanksgiving. And the growing concern over the farm economy for 2009.
And oddly, by my last Christmas as a choirmaster. While it is a relief to step down, this is the time now to be pushing the effort on the new music, and I barely can concentrate. More importantly, those scattered hours of singing always made the cold and dark of November a little more bearable.
Important things are happening all around us right now. Maybe they always are. But when I catch my breath perhaps I can describe better what I think they mean.
But I have learned one thing from 2008: more things are possible than we have ever imagined.
