The election is over. I lost. I will discuss that later. Otherwise, Lance and I have been busy moving from the apartment in Fertile back to the Swamp Castle. I also spent two days finding and pulling up yard signs. It is time to reset our life back to where it was before I decided to run for the District 1B seat. 


I am ever-ambivalent, which allows me to enjoy the best of most situations. I would have been elated to win, and would have immediately started work. But, having put in a good effort and having lost by a margin convincing enough to assure me that nothing more I could have done would have changed the result, I am happy to take advantage of the clean, empty slate that lies ahead of me. Until everything is unpacked and reset, however, I have no idea what the future entails. I can't even find a pen. Or a shirt. Or the pepper. Or the coffee filters. 


One thing is for certain: I am grateful for and touched by all of the support and effort others put forth on my behalf. I learned a lot about people during the six months' campaign, and the best thing I found out was how kind the kind people really are. I also found out how nasty the nasty people can be, but that's inevitable. The most lasting impression will be the support given by the many kind people in my life.
