Happy, happy inauguration day

I've held myself a bit apart from the hoopla surrounding the inauguration today, but last night I started to get into the spirit. It's hard not to respond to joy, especially when I have a share of that joy myself.

I am not an optimistic person - never confuse the cheerfulness of the moment with hope for the long term. The problems we face as a nation, as a planet, are so large. I am certain that one man cannot solve them. Not alone.

My joy comes from the mature response that seems to be part of the hope that surrounds me. People seem to understand that there is a lot of work to do ahead.

I'm off to do my part. There is a board meeting in two days for which I am expected to have financial reports and resolutions that will close the financial records for 2008. I am not there yet. I can hope that at the end of the day today, I will be ready to analyze the balances. And move forward with all of us.
