I awakened this morning, and literally the first thought I had was that Trump would be gone today. Never again to have to listen to his lies and assorted ridiculous crap spewed out of a mind that is clearly sick.
It’s funny how Dan used to tell me to stop comparing him to my ex, because he just thought it was disrespectful of the office. But that was when we just started dating, and maybe I did do it too much. But the similarities in the personality type of the two men was so similar, that I just couldn’t help it. But for the last year, he has stopped telling me that. He has been convinced that Trump is mentally ill, especially post election of our new President. Every time Trump did or said something ridiculous, mean, ill-tempered, or whatever I could site a similar action from my ex. Of course my ex is powerless and his delusions can’t hurt anyone, now that he’s a ward of the state. But it was the same mindset. Dan now realizes that I knew what I was talking about.
So today is a gorgeous morning in Florida, fitting for Joe Biden’s inauguration. Not a cloud in the sky and weather forecasters are predicting themps in the low 70’s. I’m happy and grateful for that. Usually in Florida we will get the odd day that is cold, but for the last maybe 6 weeks, the odd days have hit 70, it’s been so cold here. So I’m happy to be able to open the windows and let in the fresh air, figuratively and tangibly. I hope the stench of the last 4 years ugliness will fade quickly.
I loved that Joe Biden started off his inauguration ceremonies with a memorial to the 400,000 lost to Covid. I didn’t know it was going to happen, and missed it live, but have seen bits of it, enough to be so grateful that a loving empathetic man now holds the reins of our government. Or will in a few hours.
I pray that everyone is safe today.
I hope you are all safe, and healthy. Love and light to all.
You mentioned the gorgeous weather in Florida… I loved that there was a very light snow in Washington as the inauguration ceremony began, then the sun came out bright and beautiful. The music, the speeches, poetry, … everything was wonderful!
