I know. I said I wasn’t going to post this week, and this will be a short one. But the recent election has made me so hopeful that I just needed to write a little blurb about it. In Maine, voters approved a Medicaid expansion, which will provide health care to low-income folks who cannot afford it on their own. And, as the New York Times put it, Trump and his ilk were whupped big time in states such as Virginia and New Jersey.
I know. The tide can turn again. But for this one day, I am going to allow myself a ray of hope.
And here’s a picture that captures the way I feel right now, bright and full of color.

There’s enough depressing stuff happening – take the hope when it comes! 🙂
I’ll do that, Shannon!
This is great news for hope and a turn for the better and your photograph is truly beautiful Laurie ☺💖 xxx
Thanks so much!
We’re not out of the woods yet, but there is reason for hope. I am encouraged.
And after the last election, do we ever need that hope.
Good news and beautiful leaves! 🙂
Thanks! It’s been quite a year.
Your picture sums it up.
For the first time in ages, yesterday my Twitter feed was full of positivity from your side of the Atlantic. I’m so glad that people are being galvanised into taking action – standing, voting, campaigning – keep it up!
May it continue! What a year!
I saw about the Maine referendum – restores some of my faith in people. Other election news excellent as well.
Yes, I think we can allow ourselves to happy for a week or so.
Yes – after a brutal year, we in New Jersey are feeling a bit better.
Yes, yes! I am sure of that. Wowsah!
I am glad you have power again, and that elections in the east have brought good news!
Two very good things!
I knew this would buoy you! Yay for the people of Maine!
Yay, yay, and yay! Now, if only our ratty governor would refrain from stopping the results of the vote. That’s his habit, if he doesn’t like how a referendum vote goes.
Excellent news! Those leaves are beautiful!
Great shot. And a great shot of hope!
What a year it has been, politically. We sure do need some hope.
