This is what democracy looks like. This is what America looks like.
Today there is a blue wave and I am tickled pink. Today we witnessed a pink wave and I am no longer blue.
Color me happy.
Yes, there is deep disappointment and even deeper divisions.
But today I celebrate the losses as well as the gains.
I celebrate the loss of the deep despair I have felt for the past two years. And the loss of the chronic gnawing pain that has settled in my soul and head and body.
There are big challenges and road blocks ahead, I know this. It will not be all blue skies ahead.
But I feel hopeful.
Even if just for today.
