Inauguration Nation

Change, far and wide, has come. Officially. And now, things are meant to get better.

At least, hopefully.

My personal journey with Barack Obama came full circle this week when, on another blisteringly cold day, I stood shoulder to shoulder with friends and strangers, waiting for him to speak. This time, however, we were not waiting for a speech about what the future might or should be, but what it can be, what it will be. And still, we all found ourselves listening intently, slightly doubtful; his selling of a particular vision of the future has never reall
y ended.

But it, of course, has taken a few steps forwards. Barack is now President and what started off as a hopefuly, long shot of a dream has come to fruition. And hopefully, this fact will sow the seeds of many more seasons of fruit yet to come. I wish the President much luck; his future depends on us probably more than ours depends on his.

Here are some pictures from the Inaug.

I had never been to Washington DC before, but I left feeling much impressed. It's a beautiful city with an amazing public trans system.


I had cold feet. Literally.
I dont know why im posting this picture, its kinda cool. But not really.

The grass was really dry and the millions of people at the Inauguration kicked up a lot of dust. It was sort of like we were waiting for the apocalypse. Except that everyone was really, really happy.

Upcycle, please
