Apparently the election had taken him all over the place after DNC, so he'd lost my email and only just recently found it.
The photo strikes me as odd because it looks like I'm saying a prayer (I wasn't) and it looks like I'm kind of sad (I wasn't). I was extremely awake mentally, on top of being physically exhausted, and feeling incredibly fortunate.
Thanks to Michael Francis McElroy for sending it. It brings back some of my best memories.
