the Empathy List #48: Today's forecast is presidential.
The most powerful Americans + a jelly fish live cam.
Hey friend, Liz here.
Today is the big day: either democracy dies… or doesn’t. So far, it seems we’ve survived. (BARELY!!)
Regardless, I want to remind you that while politics are essential, shape our relationships, and can shift our realities… it’s not the only thing worth caring about in the universe.
For example, when’s the last time you took a shower? Got a massage? Sat in the sunshine? Those things matter, too.
But on a day like today, it’s worth reflecting on both the outgoing and ingoing Presidential administrations. Every time the US swaps leaders, its citizens have an opportunity to evaluate who we’re going to be as a nation this time around.
I’m voting that we “build back boring.” (But that could be because I feel tired today… or because I’m sick of fighting with Facebook friends.)
Hugs to you, on this inauguration day, and long live Pres. Biden! ;-)
