What an interesting illustration. There aren't any footprints exiting the White House; and he's walking toward it alone.

Barack Obama is not alone.

i wonder if the slaves who built that house dreamed that one day a man of color would be living inside it as President?

I heard Spike Lee's wife say yesterday that she felt the ghosts of all the people who came before her with her. I imagine Obama does, too. I wonder how it feels to be a man & a symbol at the same time. Heavy burden. I know if anyone can handle it respectfully, it's him. Hope, baby. It's a fine thing to feel after so long.

The only thing wrong with that picture is that we've had NO snow at all in DC/NoVA this winter :(

If we'd had snow on the ground to enjoy, my cup would have runneth over yesterday. But no matter. I just sat there watching the whole thing on the TV and couldn't stop smiling or crying....
