Last night, my wife and I drove to a nearby ballot box to deposit our mail-in ballots for the upcoming presidential election. We were greeted by a special kind of ballot box watcher. We need more of this kind of voting observer than the kind called for by the current U.S. president.
It feels good to have voted in this most difficult election time of my life so far.
More powerful than voting is prayer, which I will continue to do, to pray for change.
Yesterday was a day of lassitude, and I didn’t get anything done. That may be because of overdoing it a bit the evening before, when I went on a three mile hike at a nearby forest preserve. That is more than twice as long of a walk than I normally take, so I was pretty tired out. The autumnal colors were beautiful to see though, and the weather was near perfect.
