life : vote


if you can vote : but choose not to : then no complaining

Hi All -

I'm still listening to the new albums from The Guggenheim Grotto and Keane, so I don't have a music recommendation this Friday like I usually do. Actually, my eardrums could use a rest, although I do get lonesome and disconnected when I'm by myself without some kind of noise.

Voting this Tuesday, November 4th, is at the top of our agenda, so if you can, don't forget to vote. It's strange, but the closer the big day gets, the more emotional I feel about it. I guess it's because we have the potential to make history in a big way and that is terrific! Earlier this week, I heard a very interesting interview on NPR about Barack Obama as possibly the first Asian-American president - read the article here.

Happy Halloween - be sure to see Sandra's inspired post. Have a treat-filled weekend!

xo, Cindy

My husband and I are beginning to feel the strain of the election. I've had to shut off the news.

I couldn't agree more. Voting is such a gift and just think...the whole world is watching.

i know i'm off a day, but i just had to get this out of my system as it's getting so intense.

For me, I get these moments of anxiety when I think of getting to Tuesday and NOT being able to vote, like forgetting a final or something!

I'm so, so excited - I'll no doubt cry either way!

Happy Halloween, darling! I missed you! :)

I am getting so anxious about it!

i wish the media would stop saying that obama has essentially won because then people won't feel compelled to vote. if that should happen, all bets are off.

I'm glad that in my life time,I can vote in such a historical presidential race! I'm so lucky that the polling place where we vote is a one block away to make it even more easy.Also my two daughters will vote for the very first time. Very exciting time!!

This is such an exciting election! I am very happy to see a much-needed shift in our government, especially during my lifetime, where hopefully what our Constitution preaches will finally be practiced.

Thank you for the creative reminder -- and the excellent article about Obama being the first Asian-American president too :) What a guy!
