Over the weekend people were celebrating the coming of Halloween and All Saints Day. There is much partying and fun. We also celebrate the coming of cooler days and the lovely fall foliage. Northern California does have an autumn, although it is subtle and slow.
The election is on everyone’s mind. At least everyone I talk to. People are scared. They’re afraid to even talk about it and that’s why they party.
I had considered spending election night camped in the woods. Far away from any media where the election results will be tallied and finally called. Then I was recruited to help at an election party. I decided to go, so I wouldn’t be alone. And I’ll be working, so if there is a monitor on, I can ignore it.
