I have a busy day, but I'll post a few thoughts on the election later tonight, including some (hopefully) entertaining pictures I took of the TV last night. In short, this blog has not shut down due to the election of Barack Obama. In fact, there's now a back-up of stuff waiting to be posted...

More soon.

Overnight the face of America changed. I am full of joy, but exhausted by the emotional strain of the last months and months of daring to hope. Last night about 9:30 I finally exhaled!

I still get goosebumps and tear up when the FACT that America voted a black man to the Office of President rolls over me, knowing he ran as a person first and an African-American second. Still...

I am so proud of Americans today. We in Canada wished for this outcome more than you may realize. I regret I could not physically stand with all those in Chicago celebrating this real step forward. America is growing up.

Roll on the day when a candidate's colour, gender, sexual orientation and religion (if any) aren't even commented on. That will be true equality.
