DAY 4 (Wednesday/Today):

It’s almost noon and I still haven’t written a word. I’m overwhelmed with sadness and disappointment that Question 1 passed, repealing Maine’s gay marriage law. It’s not an abstract political issue. To my family it’s personal. I’m trying not to be bitter. I’m trying to NOT give into hate. I’m trying. And I’m going spend the afternoon trying to channel those feelings into my writing. Here’s hoping it works.

  1. That’s awful. I’m sorry and mad, too. It’s absolutely ridiculous. No wonder people around the world think we’re nuts.

  2. That’s really sad. What harm did that law do? Or would it do anywhere?

    I hate it when folk force their values down other folks’ throats.
