Today I Love The Diamond Sparkle

Slanting morning sun

Today I love the diamond sparkle of the light of the sun slanting in through my breakfast nook window and lighting up my morning with ferocious merriment and golden warmth. I love that mornings sound grumbly and snarly (okay, that's mostly me) but underneath there is laughter and intentional humor (okay, that might be me too) and sometimes they just fall together and everything that needs to get...

Today I Love The Music

Office squares

Today I love the music of Gord Downie. I love that he was determined to make a difference with his life and he did. I love that human nature is such that we never can see from the inside how much we affect the world on the outside of ourselves, 'cause that keeps us from quitting when we've managed to make that difference. I love that there is a...

Today I Love The Morning Show

Morning light show

Today I love the morning show of light and cloud and sky that the sunrise has created for me, for us, those of us who have been fortunate enough to see it today. I love that the covers on the motorcycles puff up like monsters in a slight breeze, like the bikes are playing dress up and trying to get my attention to take them out for a run....

Today I Love That Crescent Moon

Spelunking adventures

Today I love that crescent moon that I glimpsed out the window before the clouds drifted over it like curtains, hiding its bashful curves from prying eyes. I love being up early in the morning though I cannot deny that I also love sleep and sleeping in. I love that I might have figured out what is wrong with my phone and it may have been the dumb end (the...

Today I Love The Moody Bay

Green plaid and lace edged

Today I love the moody bay dressed all in a plaid of browns and greens with lace trimmed waves and hazy, misty air and distant echos of the gulls and geese and ducks. I love that the air is still warm, and so is the water to some extent. I love that the little stream is flowing cheerily beside the cottage and when the wind...

Today I Love This World Of Chance

The sun arrives quietly ...

Today I love this world of chance, this place of opportunities that often come from random, seemingly upsetting occurrences. I love how nothing happens that doesn't offer at least education, even though that may not be a fair exchange, it at least compensates partially for the negatives. I love that I am feeling unwell today because it gives me a chance to prove how determined I...

Today I Love Warm Thoughts

Cool, chilling skies and thoughts of warm sweaters ...

Today I love warm thoughts on cold wet days. I love people who are happy with their life choices and say as much when asked. I love talking to people who are looking for the good in this world. I love when they realize that it is easiest to find in themselves and after they do that, they see it everywhere...

Today I Love This Fair Day

New flag, passionate momentum

Today I love this fair day, sunny and warm enough at nine this morning for a flag raising for Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness. I love that my late friend Bob Wallace championed this cause and, though he suffered terribly with this disease, I love that he would have been compassionate about it even if he never had it, 'cause that's the kind of guy he was. I love that...
