... is not an emotion I feel often. Once in a while I can be proud of myself. I am proud of the Beloved when he does something awesome. That's about it. I don't 'get' national pride. It's often misplaced, misguided, and can, as history has shown, be quite dangerous.
But last night during the Superbowl, I felt it. I think. And it wasn't national, it was regional.
And it was this commercial that did it.
What does all this have to do with yet another one of my dead flowers?
Something about surviving, I think :)
