Magnolias and the Blues

The magnolia blossom is the epitome of feminine sweetness and beauty
Chinese Proverb

It's been a hell of week folks. The good, the bad and the ugly. The Democratic presidential nominee made history, his opponent who might have done better as a steel magnolia went down. And I cannot get excited because I wasn't and am not thrilled with either of them. But I will support Obama as he is the best hope we have to shine some light at the end of the dark tunnel we seem to be in. Gas went above $4.00 a gallon, more friends lost jobs this week and so it goes. Everyone is blaming everyone else and we are mired in apathy as a country. What can I say, I can't be sweet feminine and gentle about how we are responding to all of this, I want to kick some apathetic butt and take action.

I believe it's going to get better, we just need to dig in, take care of each other and look for the silver lining in all of this.
