Today I Love This Old House

Lazy, lazy, lazy ...

Today I love this old house and how it has grown to become home to me. I love that, though it is clearly nestled in suburbia and fits in with its surroundings very well, I sometimes get the sense that it is an old farmhouse deep down in its soul. I love the way that it tastes and smells and feels so homey, love the way that the echos...

Today I Love Pink Fire And Grey Ice

Good morning, world.

Today I love pink fire and grey ice and the promise of temps back up in the fifties tomorrow. I love that last year at this time we were still swimming in the bay and last night we got snow. I love that there is no way of knowing what is coming next because I hate being bored. I love that there is video of us in...

Today I Love The First Snow

Spring is always coming ...

Today I love the first snow of this season that I've seen. I love how a sense of foreboding builds until it happens and then there is a release as I accept that it has happened and that it is a sure sign that winter will come and go again. I love that I spent the evening last night at the rink with some...

Today I Love Magic Tricks

Part of Autumn's magic?

Today I love magic tricks, like when Autumn blows across the land and turns the leaves into a magic rainbow of her own colors, or when Breeze takes the fallen ones that seem lifeless and inert and levitates them in a whirling spiral outside my front door. I love when it is raining and bordering on snow and then suddenly the sun is winking at me...

Today I Love Waking Up Easily

The season's dance

Today I love waking up easily to a new day of cool, calm, subtle joy. I love the quiet love of a home that hums its happiness. I love the sound of laundry after breakfast, the silent mime act of the soft gentle rain falling on the deck outside the patio door, the blue jays dashing 'round in search of snacks to graze on. I love the distant...

Today I Love Music On The Peninsula

Trying to keep up with a fast paced life ...

Today I love music on the peninsula being played by our friends, Our Shotgun Wedding, and their guests at Rachel's Bakery in Lion's Head Ontario. I love that we're going to see them today because we've only seen them once this year so far and that won't do at all. I love that I can't get the music of Friday...

Today I Love Spontaneous Musical Collaboration

Mmmmmm, music!

Today I love spontaneous musical collaboration and the way it can just suddenly happen. I love that my friend Kati Gleiser walked in to the open mic yesterday and just after I began playing one of my songs she sat down at the piano and started playing along, a song I'm fairly certain she's never heard before and she was playing the melody perfectly and adding amazing harmony as well....

Today I Love An Easier Day

Cool, white, great room light

Today I love an easier day to maybe take a bit of time to relax in. I love that I still have lots to do and that every time I try to go through the to do list in my mind I give up because there are so many little things that want doing, but I'm feeling no pressure and I know a lot of those things...

Today I Love Steady Progress

Leaves plotting plots

Today I love steady progress that moves me forward in life, though to be honest I'm not seeking life's destination, just enjoying the journey and progress is most assuredly a positive part of that. I love the wild wind that has swept across the bay and brought with it an end to the heat and humidity that hampered my breathing for the last couple of days....

Today I Love Signs Of Caring

Wednesday office coffee art

Today I love signs of caring, like when messengers goes wonky and doesn't show the incoming half of a conversation but I can clearly see that the other person is typing so I start to worry and send messages saying as much and the other person then starts worrying about me and whether I'm alright. I love fixing words so much that when the Facebook shows...
