...make blueberry muffins.
No, I kid, but these are the muffins I made in honor of Barack Obama. I don't really "make muffins" so this seemed like a special feat.
I also dressed up for the event.
and! My coworkers and I managed to wrangle excessive amounts of food and stream the whole inaugural event on our computers causing a great echo throughout the halls of the music school. It was a pretty incredible morning.
I don't have much to add the clatter that is the coverage of our new president's inauguration. I can say that I feel proud to be a part of this point in history and I've examined that pride, inquiring if it is stirred by hype or manufactured in anyway but as far as I can tell it is thoroughly mine and absolutely genuine. I couldn't help but doubt the likelihood of this possibility, but I am so incredibly thrilled to see this side of the event. It is true, it is real, it is not just rhetoric, it is a reality and I'm proud of it.
So, all I can say is I'm thankful for a day like today and what a day it is.
