I had no idea this would make me so happy.
I may have been taken in by campaign rhetoric, been swept up in mass transatlantic hysteria and thrown reason to the winds of emotion and idealism - but somehow, fundamentally, it does.
Today, the sky is a brighter grey. People seem kinder, braver, stronger. I feel as if I woke into a world in which possibility can become reality, hope can turn to belief, and something wonderful, perhaps even magical, is brewing.
A good day for planting little acorns.
