2008 Letter from the Blur
posted by November 3 at 15:53 PMon
Nothing is really that compelling about my voting story (it was done absentee at the People’s Pub in Ballard). The real story is what is going to happen tomorrow. I hop on a plane at 8:30 am and will end my day at Grant Park in Chicago. I do happen be one of the 65,000 who have tickets to get beyond the gates. Why I bought the plane ticket? How I found out to email about attending the “celebration”? It is all a blur. I bet the next 48 hours will be the same. Right now my feelings are nausea, sugar-fueled panic and tense glee. Why am I doing this to myself?
