the world has changed, and so must i


I, like so many people of our nation, feel a strength in my Americanness that I haven't felt in a long, long time.

This is about 'change' as an imperative, not a slogan.

Change course.

Change lives.

Change your mind.

Change the set of assumptions that's gotten you through this far.

Change is here - and it's big - and we can all find a spot on the rope to pull it along.

While the results were coming in I was deep in a yoga class. Flowing from asana to asana, bubbling with the shakti pouring in from the growing celebrations on all sides, I windmilled into the most beautiful virabhadrasana I've ever done. And, listening to his beautiful, beautiful speech, I realized that we're all entering a new moment in our lives - a season of seva.

I have some ideas about how I'd like to make this happen for myself, and I'm going to think them over carefully over the next few days.
