Today I Love Early Morning Walks

Magic on a mild grey day

Today I love early morning walks in almost mild weather. I love that I don't have to clean the car and truck off right away, though I do have to clean them off still, but I get to do it at my leisure. I love saying hi to the people out on our street, love talking to the crossing guard who was going to help...

Today I Love Being Sixty Years Old

Sixty years worth of books? Naw, just some of them ...

Today I love being sixty years old and knowing full well that I deserve this life I have now. I love that it took me sixty years to get into my sixty-first year of life and that was a lot of work. I love that I am proud of myself for getting here, not proud of everything I've done, but happily proud...

Today I Love Being In My Sixty-first Year

The birthday boy ...

Today I love being in my sixty-first year of life and having sixty years of practise in the tank to make sure I get this one right. I love that when I turned fifty-five I called that mid life because I intend to live to be 110 but now I'm contemplating upping the ante and calling this the mid way point so that I can experience every...

Today I Love The River

I wish I had a river ...

Today I love the river that runs through my little city. I love that when I see it half covered with ice it reminds me of Joni Mitchell's song "River" and that my friend Shawna Caspi has been covering that song recently. I love that we found ourselves wandering all over town today, at the Bayshore Community Centre for a trade show, at...

Today I Love Novel Writing

Fluffy

Today I love novel writing and the fact that I have finally started doing that again after a long period of being busy with so many other things. I love that I have made plans to be finished the first draft of this book by spring. I love that I hope to write a hit single song that goes platinum and then retire to a life of writing...

Today I Love Quiet Adoration

Good morning coffee

Today I love quiet adoration like the kind I saw at the breakfast table this morning when the coffee was served. I love when people indulge in simple things and really enjoy them. I love the steady confident ticking of my pendulum wall clock as it does its very best to approximate the passing of time without the help of the internet. I love that our tree is still...

Today I Love Successful Stormy Drives

Looking good, Wednesday

Today I love successful stormy drives to my Wednesday office where the weather actually looks just fine so far. I love that there is a little town half way here that usually has the worst weather, as in it can be a sunny summer day in mid July and no one would be surprised to find it to be ten below and three foot drifts there...

Today I Love Finding My Way Home

The Tuesday orchestra warming up ...

Today I love finding my way home on the long, weary, rainy road yesterday and being here this morning to resume the activities of a normal week. I love that the holidays are stil fresh in my mind and heart now that they are over and done with for another year. I love that there are still things to look forward to, my birthday,...

Today I Love Watching The Days Slowly Get Longer

Soft, grey, fluffy, and slightly longer ...

Today I love watching the days slowly get longer. I love how easy it is to remind myself that the weather will always be changing and to know that it will always be changing for the better, even if "the better" isn't immediate. I love how easy it is to love winter when I understand all the good it does. I love that I already...
