And then it flew away

For me the most unforgettable moment of the inauguration today was watching ex-President Bush get in a helicopter and fly away from the Capitol.

It was as if at that moment, everything lifted and we faced a future. It is winter; it is cold and bright-white and empty. It is Bush’s legacy. But you get the feeling there is actually something growing under the snow.

Let’s hope for good weather.

As for the long winter’s nightmare, it just flew away.
