The poet’s habit of living
should be set on a key so low that
the common influences should delight him.
His cheerfulness should be
the gift of the sunlight;
the air should suffice for his inspiration,
and he should be tipsy with water.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Um, I’m phoning it in today. I have a little bit of a CNN hangover. Sooooo tired.
Although, I do like this quote quite a lot. I love the notion of being drunk with life. A sort of photosynthesis, transforming the sun’s warmth into contentedness and good cheer.
So! For the most part, I thought last night’s debate was ho-hum, pretty much what I expected.
Except for one second where I sat bolt upright and asked my husband, “Did you just see that? Did that woman just wink at me?”
Yuck. I do not approve of winking. At all. Made me feel dirty.
Oh, I liked when Sarah Palin inadvertently said McCain will “leave” and then quickly corrected herself with “lead”. Ha!
I need to think more about what I saw before I totally go off about it.
Did you watch last night’s debate? What did you think? In particular, I’d like to know what non-Delawareans think of Biden!
