My New Favorite Website

After performing yesterday at Unity Church during their two morning services, Jim and I hauled ass up to Fort Collins in the hope that we would be able to get in to see Barack Obama speak at CSU. You can imagine, after getting up at 6 in the morning to ensure we got down the mountain in time for the Unity gig, by noon I was in less than great shape, but I am so glad we made the trek. The entire experience was INCREDIBLE, from trading stories with other voters in the two and a half mile long line to Obama's powerful and inspiring stump speech. The entire afternoon was full of hope, inclusion, fine spirit, camaraderie, and (best of all) the most positive message I could have imagined. I'll write about it another time after I have the chance to let the experience percolate. I am just so pleased that we got to be a teeny, tiny part of history yesterday, just two people in the crowd of 50,000.

After the recent barrage of politically related posts, it's with great pleasure that I sit down to write about something other than She-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. This morning, in my quest to turn away from election news, I came across The Daily Coyote, a website chronicling one Wyoming woman's experience raising a coyote pup who would have otherwise met a terrible fate. The photography is exceptional and the story absolutely fascinating. I started from the beginning of the posts and the next thing I knew it was an hour later and I was still reading. As we live in the thick of coyote country and have a neighborhood male who likes to walk right down the middle of our road in the winter, I was completely taken in by Shreve Stockton's story. I am betting you will be too!
