Today I Love The Rain Tympani

As the weather comes and goes ...

Today I love the rain tympani on the roof and window as I wake up to this soft, wet, wonderful Saturday of potential adventure and exploration. I love that, even though I am inside and in bed, the weight of the rain feels like it is holding me down and keeping me from moving. I love the that there are pieces of...

Today I Love Friday’s Feeling Of Freedom

Friday backyard wildlife

Today I love Friday's feeling of freedom and the plans that we have for this new weekend that has rolled up onto our doorstep. I love the writing rule that clearly states, "Always avoid all alliteration!" I love alliteration too much to avoid it. I love that this week has seen us out on the water in the dragon boat twice and it looks like two nights...

Today I Love This Complicated Day

Serious calculations going on ...

Today I love this complicated day of forecasted sun but actual rain, of air outside warmer than the air in the car, of hopes to do outdoor things but the reality of doing indoor things on the porch. I love that a robin landed on the porch at my feet and scared itself and made me jump a little as well. I love that I can...

Today I Love That The Dragon Lives

The Dragon lives!!!

Today I love that the dragon lives and that on this day I will find her winter lair and assist her in making her way to her summer harbor where she will rule the water again. I love that our dragon boating season starts tonight after I haul our boat from winter storage and we launch it and hopefully go for our first paddle of...

Today I Love Random Gifts

Bird quote, "The things I have to do to make it on social media!!!"

Today I love random gifts like the opportunity to keep a bay breasted warbler warm when it went into shock after hitting our window and the chance to see him fly again and hear him sing about the crazy thing that just happened to him. I love to hear about the gifts that others receive, like...

Today I Love The Way The Mist Is Marching

Clouds at water level

Today I love the way the mist is marching determinedly up the bay. I love this magical place of mysterious goings on. I love that we have become a part of those goings on and the mysteries are no less mysterious to us. I love that there are so many country things that I didn't realize I was missing in the city, love that they seem natural...

Today I Love The Shadow’s Proof Of Light

Light makes shadows and shadows define light

Today I love the shadow's proof of light, that bad weather reminds us to appreciate good weather, that pain usually reminds me that I have worked hard and accomplished things, and that darkness is the very quality that helps us appreciate the light. I love that I am tired and moving slowly because I know how much I've already gotten done. I love that I...

Today I Love The Parting Week

Moody day throwing shade at us

Today I love the parting week and all it has seen accomplished. I love that I enjoyed every part of it though it challenged me greatly. I love that I treat challenges like I'm in training and that I strive to go beyond just meeting, accepting and surmounting those challenges. I love that I am also determined to find things I love in them and...

Today I Love My Past

Where I came from ...

Today I love my past and the past that preceded me and paved the way for me to have this life of happiness and freedom that I enjoy. I love that I have located my copy of the book that was written about the village I grew up in when I was a youngster. I love that there is a picture of me and my two...
