It may be a while before I'm able to post the whole story, because it's a long one, but we're home and Brandon is watching Noggin and eating grapes (which he asked for, completely out of the blue), after eating only raisins for two days. The symbolism there is pretty compelling, I think.
I believe that women's lib means I can live however I choose - even if that means staying at home, baking cookies from scratch and knitting baby booties all the livelong day. I believe that discriminating against anyone based on their color is racism - even if they're white. I believe that the bad auditions on American Idol are the end result of twenty years of focusing on self esteem - "you are perfect no matter what" - piled on top of a century of growing up consuming music rather than making it together as a family. I believe the children are our future. I believe in miracles. I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.
