I remember exactly where I was this time four years ago: I was at one of my favorite places in the world, the painting studios at my old school. Everyone was eager to paint that night to take their minds off the election chaos that was unfolding, but of course everyone present will admit it was a little difficult to keep focused.
Surely everyone must be experiencing similar levels of distraction today (and maybe for the past several weeks and/or months)? If you have a calendar, or a newspaper subscription, or a cell phone, or if you've talked to a human in the past week, you're aware of the news and the narratives leading up to this point in time.
So what's everyone's plan for tonight? And for the next week? And for every other week after that? Whether you're going to opt for a Harry Potter movie watching marathon, or you're going to be mainlining CNN, or you're going to get out onto the streets, no one is really looking for the abstract painting angle to the news at the moment, which is sensible.
