Yesterday, Plus' Cindy Rizzo offered some advice post election trauma, "If it’s too much, for now, stop, read novels, see movies, at least for a while so you can heal — then take my advice: Immerse Yourself In Your Definition of Faith: This could be prayer, this could be nature. For those who observe, the repetition of familiar liturgy has a meditative effect. For others, it might be your own meditation practice or the time you spend under trees or by the water. Try if you can to find gratitude for what is still good and right."
It looks like Hillary Clinton has taken the same path, in a piece in New York Magazine, Margot Gerster and her infant daughter Phoebe ran into the Clintons while hiking in their homeown of Chappaqua, New York.
Said Gerstner on Instagram, "Ive been feeling so heartbroken since yesterday’s election and decided what better way to relax than take my girls hiking. So I decided to take them to one of favorite places in Chappaqua. We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was. I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her. She hugged me and thanked me and we exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I’m not one for signs but I think ill definitely take this one. So proud. #iamstillwithher #lovetrumpshate#keepfighting#lightfollowsdarkness"
It certainly gave us some respite from the general malaise we've been feeling.
