The Four Seasons sang about it, you know, “Silence is golden”. The original quote says “Speech is silver, but silence is golden”. The phone is quiet this morning. I have not even had ONE call. I am working away, with the TV on in the background, and I have not heard one commercial telling me the dire circumstances if I vote for one candidate or another. At last the never-ending campaign is actually over and as my Mother used to say, it feels like pouring cold water on a hot burn!
We can all relax and take a breath. This political season has come to an end. It’s time to focus on other things, like enjoying the last few days of a spectacular fall. Or, maybe time to plan that next trip, the one where we go “Over the river and through the woods”.
But wait! It’s still almost 2 months before Christmas when what do I hear? Why it’s the sound of faint jingle bells becoming quite clear!! And then, what to my utter surprise do I see, but a great BIG dog with presents on my TV.
So, the presidential campaign is no longer a race. The holiday season will now takes its place.
