Today I Love The Cooling Rain

SUMMERFOLK!!!! Main stage is a great shelter.

Today I love the cooling rain, its soothing wash of calm and sweet all over everything. I love how it has cleaned up our park a great deal, the dust and sand that has flown through the air all week is now sunk to its lowest depths and any new potential dust is stuck to the places it might have come from. I love that...

Today I Love The Beating Sun

Hot sun, hot coffee

Today I love the beating sun as it scorches the world to remind us that summer has its down side too. I love the fun that people are having here in the park at the splash pad and on the beach. I love that the whole show seems to be coming together very well, though I cannot vouch for that personally because some things have changed and now...

Today I Love A Day Off … Sort Of

My Wednesday office coffee

Today I love a day off ... sort of, where I get caught up on all the work I've been putting off while Summerfolk gets itself built. I love that the park is changing in ways both subtle and grand that don't really make much of a difference, but that somewhere between five and seven o'clock on Friday evening there will be a sudden transformation from jumbled...

Today I Love The Rush Of Mondays

If I built you a folk festival, would you come to it?

Today I love the rush of Mondays and how they promise a week of achievements and then deliver on their part of them, the start. I love that Mondays have the audacity to make promises that the rest of the week always has to keep. I love how Mondays can seem like Wednesdays sometimes in the same way that Sundays...

Today I Love Sundays That Strike Without Warning

The aftermath of Sunday striking ...

Today I love Sundays that strike without warning. I love when I wake up and have to reason out what day it is by process of elimination. I love Sunday coffee in bed, even though I have to hit the road and get to work on Summerfolk, 'cause folk festivals don't build themselves, eh? I love that I started this post in the morning and it's...

Today I Love That Summerfolk Begins Now

It begins ...

Today I love that Summerfolk begins now, even though the show doesn't start 'til next Friday night. I love that we've started construction at the park. I love that so many things are different this year and yet it's still the same job and the same people and the same fun. I love how much I look forward to this. I love that we get to put together...

Today I Love The Hustle Of Preparation

Every sunset is a perfect sunset, but some are more perfect than others, yes?

Today I love the hustle of preparation. I love that so many things are coming up that need to be prepared for. I love that friends are staying at our cottage this weekend while we start getting ready to help make Summerfolk happen. I love that today is my radio show deadline and it's so close to being...

Today I Love Mourning Doves

You've never seen these clouds before and now they're gone

Today I love mourning doves that I hadn't seen before at the cottage but that are suddenly here with all the other avian citizens of the shoreline of the bay. I love sunset on the dock and early morning coffee on the dock and busy workdays at the cottage no matter what the work is. I love that today is...

Today I Love The Biodiversity Of Our Lawn

The wondrous wilderness of the garden of biodiversity that is our lawn ...

Today I love the biodiversity of our lawn and the way it comes back to life after drought like conditions have turned it into dirt and dust. I love that it supports more wildlife than a plain grass lawn does. I love that it is like a meadow in the making, spring loaded and ready to...
