A Plea

I haven't discussed politics here because (until now) I felt that the time I spent crafting was sacred and shouldn't be interrupted by nasty, grumpy, unpleasant things. Crafting is a place where I go to escape. If I let politics infiltrate my sacred space than where would I go to get away? I don't feel that way anymore. I realized recently that my creative energy is fed by all of my thoughts - even the frustrated or angry ones. So today I'll discuss politics.

Here is my plea: to all who supported Hillary Clinton: Please get behind Barack Obama. Please do whatever you can to get him elected. Yes, I was a Hillary supporter. I did it quietly and with a few reservations, but I did it. And now, I'm going to do all I can to support Obama. This time, maybe not so quietly.
