Today I Love Listening To The World

Must have been good stuff ;)

Today I love listening to the world, the soft babbling of dripping water from roof and tree and fence and bush, the shushing of cars as they squish by me on the road as I walk in the lovely melting morning. I love feeling the breeze that seems so mild and pleasant but would have been so cold to experience in Spain last week. I...

Today I Love The Slow Quiet Calm

Coffee on ice ...

Today I love the slow quiet calm of the snow covered world in which I live. I love that, now that the driveway is cleared, the cottage is very peaceful. I love the call of winter birds from tree to tree as they find their way to and from food and keep tabs on the predators that are lurking and looking for lunch here in the...

Today I Love This Olympic World



Today I love this Olympic world and what we can do if we all work together. I love that the differences between people are never as great as they are made out to be, that the biggest weapon is always the drama with which those differences are stated and that if we could learn to see past that drama, all the other weapons in the world...

Today I Love This Home Adventure

Home brew ... at home.

Today I love this home adventure, starting back into old routines that seem almost like distant memories, finding my way through things as foreign today as the country I've been in for the last two weeks. I love how sweet the air at Montreal airport tasted to me on our layover there. Oh Canada, I love you so. I love that I had to clear...

Today I Love Spain

Fuengirola from the pier

Today I love Spain and all the sights I've seen, though admittedly I haven't seen as much as there is to see, but I've seen enough to see in two weeks and maybe, if I'm very good and very lucky I will get to come back here someday and see more. I love that this is my last full day here in...

Today I Love Joni Mitchell

The Fuengirola moon over the north of Africa

Today I love Joni Mitchell because, even though it was written about life in Matala in Greece, I can hear the Mediterranean in every bar of Carey. I love that that song won't stop playing in my head, and even though I usually hate when I can't get a song out of my head, Dr. Joni's music is always welcome there. I love...

Today I Love Pancakes And Syrup

Urban rubber tree

Today I love pancakes and syrup and I love that we cooked the pancakes for our host and that the syrup came with us from Canada and it is locally made maple syrup. I love the adventure of cooking North-American pancakes with ingredients labeled in Spanish. I love that they turned out not bad. I love that I have never before eaten pancakes in sight of orange and...

Today I Love Sunday Breakfast In Spain

Older than old ...

Today I love Sunday breakfast in Spain where we are apparently going out to meet friends. I love that this is something I've done many times in my life in Canada and so it seems both exotic and familiar for me to be doing this here. I love that yesterday we saw Marbella, spent a bit of time there, walked through the old town and I pictured my...
