i voted yesterday, tramping down to city hall on my lunch hour -- a nice little excursion on a wet, cold and blustery day (no sarcasm intended). the election area wasn't too crowded and I dumped off my ballot nice and quickly.

on the way upstairs, I got to witness a same sex marriage. it made my day. two young tall handsome men, dark pants, white shirts, bedecked with hawaiian leis, clutching roses and each other as they made their way up the stairs. upon the pronouncement they kissed, one suddenly kissing hard and hugging tight, holding onto the moment. the assembled crowd of passerbys and other waiting participants clapped happily.

i'm glad I live in san francisco where that moment is not begrudged.
