Extended Hands & Unclenched Fists

What a day it's been. I had a couple of pieces of personal good news, the sun came out and shed its benificence on the proceedings, and then there was the inauguration. It just doesn't get much better than this. It feels as though a long, dark slog through a boggy wood has ended, and I've come out into a bright, sunny meadow where deer frolic and bunnies play.

I've been trying not to get my hopes up for so long that it feels like the safe way to live. I'm not going to do that anymore. I'm going to let myself off the leash and live a little. Sure, there will be disappointments down the road, but what the hell ya gonna do? Let the sun shine down.

And how about this? Like liquid gold:
