Good Morning!

I am peaceful and serene as I look out, unable to see the homes that I read were flooded when a water main broke.  It seems the street is buckled , a street we use when Highway 1 is blocked.   Hmmm!

It is a morning of gratitude.

We made a fire last night and lit candles and had heat.  Heat is wonderful.  Not too much, of course, but there is a certain amount that is restful and stimulating.

There is an advertising section in the Wall Street Journal for the HDTV.  It shows a picture of the family gathered in front of a TV displaying a fire.  The family holds marshmallows on sticks.  The ad proclaims, "High-Definition TV is the digital fireplace - the new focal point of your living room or family room.  While the warmth of a crackling fire has undeniable charm, HDTVs promise to entertain you and your family all year long, in increasingly varied ways."

One might ask how a TV can make a promise, but you get the gist.

Having spent the last four days watching and listening to a "real" fire, I know that nothing equals that.

Hillary Clinton's display of emotion yesterday seems to invoke a great deal of comment.  I watched it and felt it.  This woman wants more than anything to be the first woman president.  I haven't yet decided how I will vote, but I do believe this woman cares and feels she would make a difference.  I don't yet understand why Kucinich was kept out of the ABC debates.  I can't follow it all, and I was happy that Hillary let us feel the challenge of running for office.  I felt it in my heart.  I know hers was moist and soft.   I don't know how I will vote, but I am grateful to feel what the candidates go through in seeking this office.  It takes a courageous heart.
