I ran across this today on one of my favorite blogs, Grow Wings, by Laini Taylor. She is an awesome creative artist, author, and I just had to share it. Well said Keith Olbermann, well said!

This is for all those wonderful people out there, who are "in the middle". You know who you are....this one is for you!

If you have a chance, before it ends, try to get to The Gallery on Bainbridge. My mom is part of a show called "Word", and it really is a cool word. Poetry meets Arts type of thing...very cool. This is mom with our flowers, (doesn't she look beautiful?)

Joe Biden came to Tacoma yesterday...and I was one of about 12,000 people to see him! I was so excited, it was really great! I missed Obama in Seattle, as well as Hillary here (much to the disappointment of youngest), so I really didn't want to miss this. The gates opened at 12pm, the heavy hitters from Washington was there, including Norm Dicks, Maria Cantwell, Patty Murry, and Christine Gregoire. Everyone was happy, and hopeful and it was a pretty cool thing to be involved with.

Joe Biden is a very exciting speaker, people were clapping and whooping and having a great time. Hard to not feel hopeful at what could be a major turnaround for our country.

My mother is an amazing woman. She is one of the kindest, most genuine, honest people I know. She is silly and wonderful and beautiful.

Now, add to that an amazing accomplished artist, and you have Jeannie Grisham. Her recent painting at the Women Painters of Washington won first prize! If you have a chance to see it, it is showing at the Mercer Island Community Center Gallery. Way to go mom!!
