Ups and Downs

I spent last night at the Texas Capitol and it was such an emotional experience.  It’s all that yesterday was, emotion.  I felt

  • inspired by the crowds
  • uplifted by my friends
  • triggered by some of the signs
  • frightened by Senators
  • cared for by Senators
  • troubled by some of the anti-abortion activists
  • annoyed by others
  • supported by fellow feminists across the web
  • exasperated by the State Troopers
  • star struck by Cecile Richards (she talked to me!)
  • proud that I had two potential clients approach me
  • resolved

I’ll be ready to mobilize again on July 15th for the National Day of Action, but I need to spend today processing.  And perhaps watching some roller girls.
