Welcome home, America

I have been trying to organize my thoughts about Barack Obama's inauguration on Tuesday, and I have failed utterly.

Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman playing together was simply outstanding to watch and listen to. "A Gift To Be Simple" is one of my favorite songs.

I loved the speech.

I loved the hope.

I loved the benediction, and I am by no means a religious person. That minister was incredible.

Welcome home, America.

I'll leave you with Bruce Springsteen and Pete Seeger, because I think the song pretty much summarizes my mood right now. =)
