Today I stood within 2 blocks of The President of the United States. I saw the sirens. I saw the crowds. I saw the line of black SUVs. And I should have been excited... I wanted to be excited. But somehow I didn't care.
I've been disappointed in government recently - more so than usual. Disappointed in the decision not to take the time to vote on gay marriage. Disappointed in the Broadway show Obama chose to see (of all the great theatre here right now!). So instead of being in awe that POTUS and I were mere blocks from each other, I was just annoyed at the traffic jam of people.
Perhaps New York is getting to me.
