  •  Thank you, my muse !!!!! (5+ / 0-)

    You did indeed inspire and provoke me to open a vein and let it flow out.

    I feel better that I did.

    The thoughts had been bubbling up since the moments I was watching debate #1. I was in a room with over 200 Democrats at a watch party while I was visiting Santa Monica. I was struck by the reactions my fellow progressives were having to the flow of the debate, and engaged in conversations for hours afterwards. The hollywood/media-savvy folks (including someone who produces well-known documentaries) I ended up having the longest conversation with were very down on Obama's "performance". But as a someone who has won a few dozen awards in public speaking and debate in my earlier years, and had decades of long-view whole-systems eco activism experience, I pushed back in a way similar to this diary.

    Conversational discussion and public speaking are so easy for me, but writing the very same ideas can be so so difficult. Worse yet, the process can feel so daunting that I almost never am willing to start it.

    So I appreciate you being my muse last night, and I appreciate your positive encouragement this morning.

    Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
