Today I Love My Musical Life

It's a coffee thing

Today I love my musical life and all the different directions it has gone lately. I love hosting shows on public media. I love hosting open mics. I love attending other peoples open mics. I love hearing people play their own original music at open mics. I love hearing covers that people put their own hearts into. I really love hearing one of my own...

Today I Love Small Towns

Let's ride bikes down main street ...

Today I love small towns like the one I live in and the one where my Wednesday office is. I love that small towns can be found in the hearts of big cities; your neighborhood is a small town surrounded by either rural or urban frontier. I love the feeling of a small town on a sunny summer morning when it feels like it should...

Today I Love The Coolness Of This Morning

Enjoying the cool of the morning ...

Today I love the coolness of this morning. I love how hot it's been lately and that it has been perfect for going swimming in the bay, but since I have a lot of work to do this week this cool sweet morning is the perfect way to start a busy time. I love that I can hear a lawn mower in the distance, but...

Today I Love Newly Repaired Steps

Stepping up the sturdiness ...

Today I love newly repaired steps and a list of other projects that are going to be tackled today and in the coming weeks. I love that there are things I can do, things I've done often enough as a contractor, that add ease and comfort to our surroundings here on the edge of the bay. I love that I have the tools and the...

Today I Love My Family

Lazy outdoor office, it's like I haven't moved since yesterday.

Today I love my family, I love that today is the fifty-sixth occurrence of my family's McKinlay Reunion, love that we are still doing this, love that I have been to all of them except maybe one. I love that we still meet even though there is not a single person with the name McKinlay any more though there is...

Today I Love Petrichor

Coffee to go ... home

Today I love petrichor and the fact that I got to experience it twice yesterday because neither rain we had yesterday was enough to remove the earths potential to produce that wonderfully inspiring smell. I love rare smells like big, still water, and petrichor, and the ozone smell that comes with a thunderstorm. I love the sweet way that my world smells, love that...

Today I Love The Promise Of Rain

Watching the clouds roll my way ...

Today I love the promise of rain. I love how it seems like Mother nature is threatening it, but we need it so badly here that it is the thing we want most to be threatened with. I love that she only makes it seem threatening so that we have time to bring in the pillows from the lawn furniture and roll up the...

Today I Love Cool Morning Air

Coffee!!!

Today I love cool morning air on days when we know it will be hot soon. I love Thursday mornings and the way they feel so casual and comfortable. I love how so many of the week's things are done already and the ones that aren't done yet are whispering that there is still today and there's always tomorrow. I love when people come to the rescue when you least...

Today I Love Feeling Good

I'm ready for them ...

Today I love feeling good, rested and ready for Wednesday's adventures. I love that each day starts out empty of action but full of potential. I love that, if you set your sails right, you'll catch the best of the days wind. I love that sometimes that means learning to enjoy relaxing and other times it means accepting that the day will be busy and full. I...

Today I Love Finding Pictures On My Phone

Looking at the wonders of another part of the world

Today I love finding pictures on my phone that were sent to me, and remembering where they were taken and what was going on at the time. I love when they are suddenly more beautiful than they seemed at the time because at the time they were in the context of being in a wonderful place but now they remind me...
