for us as the world to be a player, a participant,
and see a new perspective,
and reflection,
for a way good day.

I did indeed vote in your poll; thanks for asking. I wish you had a "sure hope so" or "hoping for his success" choice in your poll. I only want him to succeed as that means success for our country and hopefully for the world. I can only roll up my sleeves, contribute and root for success.

Awesome photos! I especially love the first one, the view that Pres. Obama saw when he descended those stairs into the history books. And PS, I love your blog label, that little red royal bee. So cute!
