on my way to vote in the primary election yesterday
in the midst of many signs
one stood out.
“in an election, one needs both hope and audacity.”
part of my aussie family
was visiting here in
ann arbor, michigan, usa
bunbury, western australia
went to a local county beekeepers meeting
some of my family who live here
came face to face with
the same time and place
turned and talked
went their separate ways once again.

i went to the official opening
of the local headquarters
my choice of candidates
for the office of
president of the united states of america.
when i pulled into the parking lot
there was not a space to be had
there was a torrential downpour of rain
yet people of all ages
pouring out of the door
once i walked into the room
so much enthusiasm
so full of hope
it was overwhelming
i’m excited to say that
tomorrow i’ll begin helping them
to try to make it all happen in november.
“act as if what you do makes a difference. it does.”
