Today I Love Week Ends

Week's end coffee

Today I love week ends and how much I look forward to celebrating another successful completion of that cycle of days. I love that my weekend starts at seven o'clock, though often I'm at the open mic at four and that's more fun than work so the end of my scheduled responsibilities are often blurred into my scheduled games and adventures. I love that though I am not...

Today I Love Being That Guy On The Radio

Turn up the radio ...

Today I love being that guy on the radio and that's a lucky thing because today is the day that I'll be finishing up this Sunday's show recording. I love that I have found several ways of producing a show and the one that seems to fit best for me is to write in advance rather than as I go, because I can work on my script...

Today I Love The Quiet Joy

I used to be cuter ...

Today I love the quiet joy all around, like that found in happy relationships. I love seeing people who have found their hearts desire and are comfortable in the company of that desired person, happily anticipating reunion and savoring the company when the reunion happens. I love watching love. I love that I get to work out of my office one day a week...

Today I Love Nature’s Art

Preparing for Monarchs

Today I love nature's art and that it shows up when and where it pleases. I love the wonder of flowers growing in pavement cracks, frosted windows that look like forest ferns, milkweed pods in winter, tree branches with snow highlights, the beautiful sun when it is magnified through the lens of our own atmosphere. I love suddenly coming on scenes of sublime and striking beauty as...

Today I Love Morning Sun Through Cedars

Good morning, Mr. Sun

Today I love morning sun through cedars on a winter's day when the air smells like winter might be pondering the softening of its grasp on the northern half of the world. I love the sounds of jays and crows calling through the pines and cedars as they make their way to the tops of naked maples and aspens to survey the world and search for signs...

Today I Love This Endlessly Rolling Lake

Lake rolling by ...

Today I love this endlessly rolling lake comprised of coves and bays, bites and sounds, and even the odd tickle. I love that it goes from long stretches of sandy beach to sheer drops of underwater limestone bluffs whose peaks just peek above the surface. I love this crisp cold day and the lazy way it has progressed through cloud patches and sunny breaks and all the...

Today I Love Bonspiels

Hurry, Harrrrrrddddd!!!

Today I Love bonspiels for charity. I love playing games for a cause whether it's curling or golf or anything else that can be played for a cause. I love that I'm sad that I'm done curling for the week 'cause that makes me aware how much I love this game. I love that my boss, Anne Finlay-Stewart, sponsored me today in the bonspiel and that the hospital is going...

Today I Love The Radio

Old technology and new ...

Today I love the radio and all my memories of times when it was my focus and my distraction. I love remembering doing my homework in my bedroom with the little transistor on my bedside table. I love remembering cruising around in the summer with the radio on. I love how the radio has kept me company during the times I've been alone...

Today I Love A Perfect Storm Of Curling

Snow to go!

Today I love a perfect storm of curling. I love that we were called in to spare last night and I'm going to spare again tonight and tomorrow night is our regular curling night and then we're playing in a fun spiel on Saturday. I love how every team is different and every sheet of ice has its own peculiarities and that it changes from the start...

Today I Love The Over Achievers

Rest in peace, Oppy

Today I love the overachievers like good old Opportunity, the Mars rover that was built to last 90 days and sent its last heart-wrenching message home after fifteen years of sterling service. I love how we as a species have reached out so far from where we are by sending our hopes and dreams in the form of a little device...
