The first week of November inevitably engenders feelings of dread; the days are short and the winds savage. I find it impossible to fend off depressive episodes considering the long winter ahead.


One thing I am looking forward to this month is the midterm elections (tomorrow’s the day!) Whatever your political creed, this election is shaping up to be a close one in many states. For the first time in a few election cycles, I am considering not voting my party line and at one point even considered sitting out altogether because the political climate has been so negative. But it’s worth remembering that voting is one of only six(ish) duties and privileges of a U.S. citizen. Your vote is precious and counts for something, regardless of how invisible, distant, or alienated you might feel from the legislative process.

Happy voting!
