I'm Smitten

I'm watching pretty much uninterrupted coverage of Kerry, Edwards et al. at a concert with the Boston Pops and a massive fireworks display over Boston (on Fox News of all places), one last finale after the convention. And Teresa Heinz-Kerry is standing with everyone watching the fireworks go up in time to rousing music like the 1812 Overture, but every once in a while she goes off in her own little world and does a little air conducting. As The Ride of the Valkyries starts, she makes little short, rapid motions mimicking the violins, and then throws her body into it as it climaxes. It was like she was a little kid! Yeah, she's an eccentric billionaire and has some weird tics, but this moment was pure, unadulterated Teresa. I loved it.
