Today I Love The Sunshine

The sunlight seeks us ...

Today I love the sunshine, though there seems to be very little of it so far. I love that I have seen it a couple of times on the road this morning, piercing the clouds, shining bolts of glorious light finding spots on the beautiful bay to ignite and warm that little extra bit, tickling the waves and flashing a little kindness around for the lucky...

Today I Love The Loss

Sweet September morning

Today I love the loss of a good friend to my community, not because of the loss, but because that loss is felt so profoundly and deeply, and that tells me how good and special and important that man was in our lives. I love that he was often too good to be true, and occasionally too true to be good, that he was always joyous...

Today I Love Smiling Faces

Ha, that's not East!

Today I love smiling faces and the way they make me feel like there is enough good in this world in one smile to outweigh all the bad, that is to say, I'd trade all the bad things that we seem to cling to for just one smile on the face of any one person no matter who they are. I love when, every now and then,...

Today I Love Quiet Mornings

Daring to be different ...

Today I love quiet mornings in the grey light before dawn when I am all alone and realize that, although I am calm and content, it is because I will not be alone for long. I love waiting for people to wake up but letting them sleep because I am content with just knowing they're there in my life. I love knowing someone is coming home....

Today I Love The Blossoming Weekend

Listening to the grass growing ...

Today I love the blossoming weekend that blooms from Friday's bud. I love that there is so much to do to get ready for this weekend but I am up for it. I love that tomorrow night I will be MCing the Crystal Shawanda show at Saugeen First Nations' James Mason Centre, 'cause that's going to be one rollicking and rocking great show. I love...

Today I Love Spontaneous Road Trips

Same old guy

Today I love spontaneous road trips with friends who volunteered to help me try a new-to-me truck cap on my new-to-me truck and it fit and it's in good shape and it's now mine and my friends are fed and delivered back to their respective origins. I love that the cap is in near perfect condition, that it appears to have hardly been used at all, and...

Today I Love Solutions

A solution solution

Today I love solutions that fit situations so perfectly they feel like they were custom made. I love when a problem that has been bothering me finds its own solution, and I love when problems end up being solved with simpler solutions than they originally appeared to need. I love how Amazon lied to me, offering me one day shipping for a premium and two...

Today I Love The Sedum’s Embarrassment

Red faced, humiliated Sedum

Today I love the Sedum's embarrassment as it finds once again that it has slept lazily through the summer and has come late to the party, blooming finally while most of the other flowers are cleaning up and going home to their earthen beds. I love that when its buds arrived last week they were a pale grey frosted green and now those tardy plants are blushing...

Today I Love People Who Care

Online and caffeinated

Today I love people who care and use that caring to inform their actions. I love when someone goes out of their way to help people who cannot see beyond their own pain because those helping people are giving those who need help the chance to get on top of their pain and see who they can help, and see too how good it could feel to do that....
