No great insight on Election Night

Election season depresses me.

The actual voting makes me feel better.

***

Explaining (why not?):

This fall I have done a (I think) decent job tuning out the campaign-commercial rhetoric, even that by the people and issues I support. Political ads...ugh. I feel an incoherent rant coming on about them. (This is one reason I wouldn't want to work in voiceovers: what about doing voiceovers for nasty, deeply misleading commercials? "Candidate A rapes, kills and eats choir boys. Not necessarily in that order. Vote Candidate B. Protect your choir boys.") And now, my tuning-out extends to the election night coverage: "With 7% of votes in 7% of precincts reporting the votes of 7th sons of 7th sons, we predict the new members of Congress will start crapping out roses in their Wednesday morning bathroom trip..." I tuned in briefly to some news tonight and then came to my senses. I'll wait for the morning news to get a better sense of what happened.

But here's a simple idea: I can't do much about campaign rhetoric. Until I vote. Which I did. And felt glad I did so.

Like I said in the title: No great insight. But I did what I wanted to do.

    I am glad you exist and that you're choosing to blog!

    Maybe not feeling poetic is a poetic state all its own?

    Try to capture that feeling - I think that will be reflective of many folks'…

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.

    I've been serving myself to watch this one day.
