Dawning

 

“Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

The battle outside ragin’

Will soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls…

For the times they are a changin’ “

  8. Already with that one quote of Biden’s the world is changing. And it is sorely needed. America was on the brink of something awful. That one quote has so many layers and holds much promise. Beautiful photographs to accompany the words. The birds in flight my eyes rested on for quite some time. Thank you for posting.

  9. A wonderful celebration of good tidings and hope for the future, Jane. The words “He won” came out of someone’s mouth today but more followed that is frustrating. However…we just have to weather the next @two months. I think most of us would like to jump for joy. 🙂

  17. Trump is awful in oh so many ways. A dangerous, erratic, narrow-minded jerk. He makes Nixon look good. The world is lucky that Biden won.

  25. Well, my friend, a great sigh of relief for us all – let’s hope all goes smoothly up to and past 20 Jan. America can edge back towards the light again. Wonderful quotes here – the Biden one got to me the moment he said it. Stay safe, my friend. 🙂

  47. Like those Kiawah photos, Jane.

    A new day dawning, I certainly we will have one on that front. I believe there is more that binds us together as a nation than divides us. For certain, our current political divisions run deep. Most unfortunate, it has led to lost friendships and family relations. Some will see the new dawn with a measure of angst. I can understand it. I have friends in both camps, with “you are either for us or against us” viewpoints. If we remain cordial and respectful, moving ahead will be easier. The middle ground is quite expansive and accommodating.

    How much leftover Halloween candy do you have? I picked up some more on final clearance, namely candy corn. 🙂

    • Thanks so much, David. It was nice revisiting my Kiawah images- glad you enjoyed.
      The message last night of healing and civility was clear -hopeful the angry division in our country will dissipate. It will certainly be hard work for our leadership.
      Ha- no trick or treaters here! I don’t trust myself with bags of candy around. Especially Snickers. 🙂
