orange but blue
yesterday (election day in canada) brought with it a roller coaster of emotions. i spun up this large orange skein in the afternoon. orange is the colour of the ndp (new democratic party). sending well wishes to all it's candidates. and well they did - becoming for the first time in canadian history the official opposition party. this was partly due to the youth vote and i find that overwhelmingly encouraging for the future. but in the mean time, the conservative party was re-elected. stronger than ever and this time with a majority. and it terrifies me to think of what stephen harper will shape this country into.
