bloody sunday

add enough spice, hot sauce, limes, mix, olives and vodka and pretty much anything tastes good. they weren't the overnight gourmet swami version - i do want to try that next time. but they were mcguyver style in my sis' kitchen: no pitcher, no worries. serve 'em like soup with a ladle.

on the open road to new mexico, beautiful girl keeps nodding in and out with her hand over little pea, the small round bump that is now showing beneath her sweater. i have to keep collin meloy pretty low.
some view in all that openness, huh?

we had a string of sunny days here that broke up the biting cold.
those are the warm mornings when you can sit outside at the coffee house and sip in the sunshine. it's been a while since they opened up the huge windows that open to the patio. the bike rack becomes filled. everyone spills out to the sidewalk with dogs and books and laptops and newspapers.

i'm thankful that we are finally moving forward:
"We will restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality..."
"And so, to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and we are ready to lead once more."
"To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect."
"And those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account, to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government."
things feel a bit different now.
we are still "amidst gathering clouds and raging storms," but at least we are beginning to take steps forward.
