It's So Hard to Say Goodbye

There's something that struck me as very poignant in the image of the empty frames lining the walls of the West Wing (well done, David Nakamura/WP). The "ghostly" quality of the empty frames prompts the mind to refill them with memory. It is hard to say "goodbye" to an exceptional president and his exceptional family. It will never be hard to recall them.

(Damn everyone seems so young there. Those little girls became young women before our eyes.)

The trust and affection of the Obama/Biden partnership always seemed unforced, natural, a real "friendship goals" situation.

From Selma to Stonewall

For Dreamers

And mourners

He was there with us. He did us proud and he did well, and I will miss his style, grace, guts, and empathy. 

In times of laughter

And tears.

I don't know where we are going from here,

It was a great trip, but every trip has to end. But I commend Obama for his accomplishments, and look forward to what he might do in the future.
