Change in Season

The autumn leaves have not yet fallen from the trees, and now they are blanketed in a thick layer of the Salt Lake valley's first major snowfall of the season. But the sun has peeked below the clouds in the west, so in the next hour and a half of remaining sunlight the snow cover will likely recede and autumn will return. For a little while, at least.

I'm not going to write a lot about the election results, because a lot of people have already done it much better than I would, and if you are a regular Bunsnip follower, you could already guess my reaction anyway. In short, I am both utterly elated in our grand step forward in closing the equality divide with the election of Barack Obama, and deeply disappointed in our grand step backward in closing the equality divide with California's passage of Proposition 8.

We still have so very much progress to make, but the seasons will continue to change in spite of us.

Sure, but if I end up going to Oregon or Washington, I'm not sure the weather will be much better!
