How to see me

Dear mysterious and lovely blog readers, whomsoever you may be. It has come to my attention that some of you still see my profound, naval-gazing entries as one big link. I've found that they appear this way if you view the blog in safari, but not in firefox or internet explorer. Viewing the blog in safari especially sucks because then you will not see the actual links, when they are there... hope that helps, and bless your hearts.

The constellation of events that is my life led to an opportunity to attend a party for Barack Obama tonight at the Hammerstein Ballroom, to hear him speak and stand just feet a few feet from him as he smiled and shook hands. I don't know if I'm certain yet about my vote, but I will say he gave me finding a favorite book that'd been flooded and torn in a basement and drying it off in the sun to see the words still there. I know this is Boulder talk, but for a politician, the man has good vibes.
