I've been reading George Lakoff's book, The Political Mind, Why You Can't Understand 21st-Century American Politics with an 18th-Century Brain. Empathy is the key here, the key for the Democrats to win the election. I'm glad Barack is taking a break, and hope he is reading this book.
I stayed awake for the meteor showers and kept getting up and now I see I had the wrong night. It was worthwhile though as the stars, and the moon while it was up, were exquisite.
I'm startled by this with Georgia and Russia. Georgia expects us to support them, and we are not there. One of the many things that bothered me about the war in Iraq was we were using up our reserves. What do we now have to offer?
Know that the George Lakoff book requires a strong stomach as to our actions. It's nothing new, and it is always difficult to read it all bunched together.
Amidst it all, enjoy a beautiful day, and savor the steps. We walked to The Buckeye yesterday for brunch and I savored the thrill of the bounce in my steps. Walk on dirt. It gives the most beautiful interaction with earth.
