I got an, "oh, cool!" For lunch today.
Simply worked with the items on hand. Sometimes it's all in stripey rows, or an alien face, when I make it just a little bit fun more "happy plates" there are when lunch is over.

So, I voted, no I didn't get a sticker. I can only say, "meh". I did it 'cause I honor the women that fought for my right to vote, and I have daughters that need to understand the process and the community responsibility of [presumed] representation. So that's what we did for morning lesson today. But otherwise, I am disillusioned about the whole process, sad about the divisive nature it causes in our country, and though I vote I already know that the more things change the more things stay the same. Seen The Campaign or The Other Guys ? Both poke "fun" at the reality of the system we've in place.
What would happen if no one voted? would the electoral college then dissipate and the office remain unfilled? What persons comprise the electoral college? Here is what came up.
"Electors are often chosen to recognize service and dedication to their political party. They may be State-elected officials, party leaders, or persons who have a personal or political affiliation with the Presidential candidate."
And this is disturbing a bit for me:
"There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their States. Some States, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categories—Electors bound by State law and those bound by pledges to political parties."

Love heals all wounds.
Forgiveness is a loving act for oneself and the other person.
When I lovingly forgive I gain freedom from the past, releasing it, such that it won't affect my present or future.
Choosing not to forgive is tantamount to choosing not to heal.
And why oh why would one choose not to heal? choose to keep a wound?
Seems egoic, grasping, and un-divine to me.
Just a thought.
Light & love,

|There are ALL the pumpkins carved for the occasion, 2 extra from a party.|
|What you see here is a nice healthy smoothie "enhanced" with Hallow's Eve candy. : /|
And now, bulleting into November, fall is a season for change and many changes are occurring. I'll have more on that later I think. For now, I'm grateful and joyful, for we are so blessed.
