Today I have two little gems of happiness to admire.
Monday Rosie, in a rare brother free car-ride, regaled me with the true interworkings of Sesame Street. Apparently Zoe (Elmo's orange, wee voiced buddy for you unintitated) is "played by a black man. Zoe HAS to be played by a black man because they are the most beautiful and the most talented. But they put a costume on him so he'll look like Zoe. But it has to be a black man because black is the most beautiful."
Love hearing "black is beautiful" coming out of my little girl's mouth organically and unprompted!
I'm elated, thrilled and relieved to have the Obamas moving into the White House. Posted many times today I've seen (and teared up every time) this lovely piece from an unknown source:
so Martin could walk,
so Obama could run,
so our children can fly.
