I was one of the lucky many (84,000) who were present at Invesco Field to witness Barack Obama give his nomination acceptance speech last night. Of course, it was magical and I've never witnessed anything like it in my life - and I'm not just talking about the speech itself but the tangible mood of positive patriotism. It was incredibly moving.
Today, I am completely exhausted from the last four days - both physically and emotionally. I had to lay down three times today and my brain is sputtering out. I'm still processing everything.
Of course, my life rarely stops for breath and I'm about to head out and meet some old friends for dinner. They are visiting from Sausalito and they've got a new little man I'm dying to meet.
Tomorrow, before I fly to NYC, I hope to get some more thoughts in here and post my videos on YouTube - a new thing for me. In the meantime, I've added another gazillion photos from last night's ground-breaking extravaganza here. (Somebody even used a couple of 'em - with my permission - for a news story.)
No matter what happens in November, I'm really grateful for this entire experience which has re-ignited my nationalist pride.
