Or Chicago.

Which just looked a little like the Heavenly City.

I've never been happier to be up at 5.30 in the morning, (just as Zephyr was leaving her comment).

Euphoria. I know.

Far better than the misery of the last two elections!

Amen to that! What an exciting night! I think the world has sighed in relief.

Yes, it was a big relief. I really honestly couldn't believe it would go the other way but you never know do you?

I'm sorry I was not around when you had your car mishap. I'm glad it is all now sorted. I always feel the same way if I do something to my car (I once turned sharply into a car park and caught the side of the car on a gate which had a bit sticking out and it scratched a deep line down the whole of the side) or if I leave things behind (which I am always doing). It takes me hours or days to shake off the feeling that I am a complete waste of skin!

A relief, yes. Now the real work. No honeymoon, no new Camelot - just the promised change from the starting block on.

What joy, what hope! I can't believe it...

Euphoria! That's just the word that I used! I find it fascinating and touching that so many non-Americans stayed up all night to watch the elections. Watching by my lonesome, I did feel left out of the fun. I wish that we could have had a Bloggers Party!

Sheer delight!

On this happy occasion I need say nothing but simply refer you to the following:

Lucy,

I found your site by following your link at Motel Zero where you commented a few days ago. I like the Motel very much, have found visiting there inspirational for a new flood of my own poetry, inspired by Haiku forms and the wonderful photos that Robin posts.

There is something about the Pacific Northwest, as we call it. Robin Starfish lives in Idaho, his friend Walt down south of me and me also in Oregon.

So when I found out you have deep connections with poetry, I said "Hoo Boy!"

So I hope you won't mind a Yank lurking around your sites. I might blurt a poem or two here as I do on the blogs I follow. But if I am too bold, tell me to go and I will, quietly.

Lucy said...

Thanks dear friends.

BB - you might have asked me along! ;~)

Christopher - you aren't lurking if you tell me you're there, and I have many American blogging friends. But if you love writing, why not get a blog of your own? You only have to post as often as you want, if you want to write in response to someone else linking back to them is easy, and you'll soon get readers if you visit and comment.

Thank you for your welcome. I join other's blogs because I primarily get this done in the interstices of my work life where I can take the few minutes these responses make. At home I tend not to have the puter on, because I make my living using AutoCAD as a mechanical designer. I promise you I don't dog it at work. I work longer hours.

But I need the different brain stretch that this stuff gives me, just like getting up and stretching one's body.

AutoCAD! A whole new ball of wax for Works Well

Gorgeous, gorgeous photos, And I had not heard of fibs, which look like a lot of fun.
