One last post for the night...

It occurred to me, while watching Obama's speech, that he is the first person of my generation to be elected to the presidency - only two years older than me, with a wife who's a year younger than me. He's going to be the nation's first Gen-X president*. It's kind of an odd feeling, but it's also very cool.

Marine Autumn

I owe you marine autumn
With dankness at its roots
and fog like a grape
and the graceful sun of the country;
and the silent space
in which sorrows lose themselves
and only the bright crown
of joy comes to the surface.

--Pablo Neruda.
