Open Thread: The Morning After

Hosted by sunrise over the mountains
...I had a fantastic post planned for today, all about my happy morning rituals and the song my mother used to sing to wake us up in the morning.

You don't get that post.  Sorry.  Maybe on Monday.

It's now 1:31 am my time, and I'm STILL not sure WTF just happened in Texas.  I will probably go to bed not being entirely sure.  Right now I know it looks bad.

BUT! Whatever just happened, today is a new day; we will "begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with [our] old nonsense." If the news was ultimately good (still hoping, dammit), we will begin today with a sense of peace and optimism. And if, as it currently seems, the news is bad, we will begin it with a renewed sense of hope and courage and passion for the continuing fight - because it absolutely will continue.

Sorry. I usually keep open threads light and non-topical. Long night.

Open thread! Thoughts on last night? Thoughts on other things? Happy distractions? Meditations and musings on fresh starts and new days? Anybody do anything FUN last night? Anyone doing anything fun this morning? Anyone have anything they need to get out of their system, because the powers that be know I sure do! Any new discoveries appropriate to new days?

Wednesday Reminder!& Open threads are meant to be fun, chatty places to discuss anything that doesn’t “fit” into a deconstruction or other regular thread. This can be something totally off-the-wall and random, or it can be something interesting that a deconstruction prompted you to think of, but which would be derailing to get into in the deconstruction thread. When in doubt, move it over here - that’s what it’s for!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
