Today, when I woke up, the early sun was streaming through the windows. A good day.

I hung our flag by the front door as the sun was rising up through the trees.

Then we settled in to watch the pomp, the ceremony and the festivities. Cayo and Sofia joined us and I took a picture for Sofia to show her grandchildren. The quality of the photography isn't great, but it records the moment.

Perhaps Barack Obama's legacy will be only that he was our first African American president, and that alone would be historic, but perhaps he truly will, with all our help, restore our country.

Tomorrow the work will begin, but today is glorious.


  1. Amen. Oh happy day!

  2. A online poll by a major newspaper here in New Zealand showed about 2/3 of the respondents thought he heralded better times. May that happen.
