As I listened to Obama's speech, I copied down this single line: "We are willing to extend our hand if you are willing to unclench your fist ..."

I copied down lines from the speech as well! Such an amazing day.

Lovely photo!

As the cold days pile up, I await the thaw, work toward it in small endeavors. Beautiful, chilling photo.

Yes, it was an amazing day -- heart-stirring. Thanks, Vesper, for the nice words. I'll try to reset the comments category.
