AP Calls it for Biden

Sunshine and fresh air after AP calls the presidential election for Biden-Harris.

Around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7, Associated Press called the presidential election for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The president-elect and vice president-elect gave speeches last night and celebrations occurred around the world.

Here in Big Grove things were subdued. The township voted for Donald Trump.

With ambient temperatures in the 70s people were outside enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Children rode zip lines into tall piles of raked leaves as their parents observed. The trail was crowded with people, some wearing masks because of the coronavirus pandemic, others walking dogs. I had my mask in my pocket yet didn’t wear it because I found few virus transmission possibilities.

The trail walk felt good.

Suddenly I felt differently. Like we could take it easy for a while. Like sunlight and fresh air would be enough for a few hours. Not sure how long it will last, yet that’s the human condition, finding space to breathe.
