I have a happiness headache

"We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope."

-(President) Barack Obama


I feel so hopeful, so light, so misty-eyed.

As amazing as his acceptance speech was, my very favorite moment on television ever was when Obama stood on that stage afterwards with his family, and that music, and that crowd.

Am all misty-eyed over here, too, in Japan. Was glued to CNN and BBC...and luckily the acceptance speech was early afternoon here. The hopes are reaching all over the world, I think. Yeah!!
