Liz at the Inauguration

Liz and her mom Audrey made the long haul to D.C. for the swearing in, leaving me at home for a week of bachelorhood/debauchery/lonelyness.

They decided to go for the cheap seats and watch from the Lincoln Memorial, and grabbed a nice spot on the steps. When we spoke yesterday through the saturated cellphone tubes, she told me she had done an interview with the Washington Post. While her interview was not published (that we know of), she and Audrey, and Audrey’s friend Dixie can be spotted in the background. Liz is the upper left in the blue coat, sending a Twitter message from her pink-clad iPhone.

One response to “Liz at the Inauguration

  • Audrey

    This was truly a moving experience — magnified by the euphoria of the diverse and mellow crowd. I was so proud of Liz for wanting to do this with me — and for her indomitable spirit! She she did an incredible job of herding around the two “old ladies” (who were out marching on Washington before you were born, thank you!)…I did truly have the feeling of being at a “hingepoint” in history, and felt compelled to be a witnes, to be simply “one in the number” as we witnessed this change. We are the change we want to see…I felt sooooo grateful to be there, and to be there WITH LIZ.
