This was oh so last week. A fresh snow on my porch and the New Year was approaching and I was feeling all the good cheer and today, just a week later we are all 2011. Christmas trees are stacked at the garbage bins and there’s just a remnant of the outside lighting and the night sky is darker.
I loved last week. I loved two years ago at just this time as Washington was preparing for an inauguration and I was buying my outfit to join in the celebrations.
It’s two years later and I’m nervous. I want that fresh snow again. Some might feel we will have it as the Republicans take the House. Not me!
I hope I’m wrong here but I don’t feel good about a budget committee that might slice and dice education programs. This morning I listened to a conversation about ending taxes on billionaries. I’m nervous.
Anyone else feel my fears? Feel free to blast through my black cloud on this crisp, winter morning.
I might have to come back and add more to this post, it’s just too gloomy. 🙂
I’m going to check out the first set of Slices for 2011 at Two Writing Teachers. Join me.
