2 days ago I read that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will swear in Vice President Kamala Harris.
The profound connection for me to yesterday’s inauguration is that I know both of these women and have had the great honor to do their makeup.
I am overwhelmed at how fantastic sincere common decency feels right now.
We were a nation left unloved and abused by the patriarch of our own federal government.
I am comforted to have, for the first time, a matriarch serving second-in-command and, if need be, a step away from the Presidency.
To quote the last few lines of youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman’s inaugural poem:
…our people diverse and beautiful will emerge,
battered and beautiful
When day comes we step out of the shade,
aflame and unafraid
The new dawn blooms as we free it
For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it
If only we’re brave enough to be it
For my part, This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!

|I hope everyone’s light is shining!
