Taking So Long

by on November 5, 2020

There are hours that will last a year

“There are hours that will last a year.” So read a line in my beautiful copy of The Three Musketeers.

I chose to disengage myself from the internet on the day after the election, while we’re all waiting for more definitive results, and to engage myself in finishing The Three Musketeers (as well as some recent television drama).

As we continue to wait for election results it feels like there are hours that will last a year.

We are all waiting on the sometimes-swing-state Nevada. A lot of people are pressing refresh every few seconds and nothing is happening. Remember that if you want to continue to click refresh, an hour will feel like a year.

When I dared to check social media again I found this, which surely explains what’s taking so long.

While we are waiting for the Count to finish, remember to engage in self-care by reading a classic like The Three Musketeers (I wrote about some of what you’ll find here), or binge-watch your favorite show.

November 3rd was when the the voting happened. By law and regulation, every state has days or weeks to count every vote. The election isn’t over until the count (Count?) is done. It might feel like it’s taking so long but we’re right on time.
