It’s a New Day!

Swording inI’ve just returned from DC and needless to say, the energy there was amazing.  My friend Callie, over in Buenos Aires summed it up best, “The whole world is soo ready for this.”  Just being in the streets of D.C., there was just a frenetic energy.  Everyone was so excited, so positive, I’ve never seen anything like it.  Even the attendants at the supermarket seemed to smile a little more.  I know I may even be being paranoid, but people seemed to actually smile at Pat and I as a couple as well.  D.C. has always been called the politicians Hollywood… I call it, the UGLY Hollywood, but Hollywood and politics combined.  Obama’s position as the rock star politician was confirmed as everyone from Beyonce– an inaugural favorite– to Sting flocked to D.C. for this event.  The concert at the National Mall was amazing, James Taylor, B, Usher, Jack Johnson, to name a few.  Too bad I couldn’t go to the Obama girls’ concert where Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers serenaded them.  Jay-Z gave a free concert….  D.C. was also just a lot warmer temperature wise.  As Brooke said, being there at this time is a must.  It’s almost the Woodstock of our generation.  There were tears in my eyes watching Obama being sworn in.  I’m still definitely in disbelief that this is the image of the Free  World’s first family.

Peace, Love, and Happiness.
