Converse for Kamala, A Pantsuit for Hillary, and Pearls for Ruth…

…was a caption on someone person’s post today about voting.

They wore each item for each woman to honor them. I loved it instantly. This campaign I have said Kamala Harris is smart for many reasons but she always has comfortable shoes on which just makes a lot of practical sense to me. She still look professional and awesome but efficient as well. Everyone knows Hillary is the queen of the pantsuit! She rocked it and it became a symbol of power of sophistication. She could also poke fun at it which I love. Of course Ruth’s pearls. I find this one most powerful. When I think of pearls it used to be something a typical 50’s housewife wore. Then, Julia Childs rocked them when she lead the culinary world. RBG turned them into a symbol of female strength (perhaps it was to the housewife too but RBG transformed it and gave it power). It’s amazing the power of an accessory, the women who made them even more amazing.

I am nervous about the election today – I think everyone is. I can only hope we learned something the last four years and enact change. Four years ago I had no fear because I was so certain the most qualified person would be elected. I was very wrong. I hope for a better outcome for this country today. Most of all I hope for a peaceful outcome for all. I hope sense wins the day in all ways it can. Let’s listen to the wisdom of LMM.

I had Hamilton Tickets for Last Night…

…and it broke my heart not to get to see it.

Seeing Hamilton was a musical theater nerd dream that I have been waiting years for and when the reminder popped up on my calendar last night I almost cried. I know for some that seems dramatic and like a silly little item on a bucket list that I can do later, but to me it hurt and still stings. I haven’t been able to afford to go before this because it was impossible to get tickets for under $300 per cheap seat. So, when the tour was coming to LA I got up early to get tickets at a reasonable price and I DID. It was awesome. I was so excited.

I realize that there are other people in the world with a lot bigger disappointments but I learned in therapy that doesn’t invalidate my feelings so I am sharing them. I want you all to know that small disappointments are okay to express even if they seem small or insignificant compared to world events or someone else’s circumstances. Feel what you feel and right now I feel pissed and disappointed to have this dream delayed yet again.
