28 days

28 days until I go to the polls.  The election call came tonight... and in 28 days, no matter which stripe of politician makes it in, it's business as usual - for them and for me.

It's not as beautiful outside tonight, the day was warmer and the ice crystal snow that was like standing inside a snow globe is gone.  All that's left in it's place is the muck and mire of another city winter night with the steam escaping from the manholes and the sanding trucks lights sending out an amber lighthouse glow through the damp foggy air.  Driving here tonight I didn't want to come, didn't want to be alone with my thoughts in the silence but I have a duty to be here... made a promise bound to my sense of honour to come and sit through the lonely nights with the silence broken only by the tap of the keys and the fan on the computer.  I am their guard dog in my black suit and tie, condemned to wander the halls and grounds while bristling at the sounds in the night so they may sleep peacefully.

I wouldn't mind it if it didn't somehow feel like a rejection of me as a human being.
