As a writer, I work alone.
I’m fortunate, I love solitude. I also like to socialize, but writing doesn’t afford both at the same time. I cocoon. It’s a must. I’m a solo act on this one.
So breaking out of my sacred routine, made working the polls that much more special! It was great to reconnect with neighbors and friends as well as experience first hand how our democratic voting system works.
I even choked up, a couple of times, when puppy like, first time voters came in clutching their voting cards and grinning from ear to ear.
My day is dedicated to my Nana Herminia!
