Today I Love This Windy Morning

Glaze on blue silk ...

Today I love this windy morning. I love that the clouds look like a thin glaze dragged and streaked across blue silk. I love that the sun sees right through their sad attempt to block its light from blasting through my windows. I love the northern skies of my home. I love hearing things rattle and shake outside as the wind comes and goes.

Today I Love The Call Of Ravens

Another soft autumn day ...

Today I love the call of ravens across the wet landscape of another warm wet autumn day. Days like today will be fewer and farther between soon enough, but other days will take their place, days with their own worthy qualities. I love that although the cloud cover is very heavy, there is a brilliant line across the sky just above the eastern horizon...

Today I Love Last Night’s Moon

Today I love that I got to see that moon and the lunar eclipse last night. I loved the darkened view of her inner self. It was more like there was a light shining through her from behind then a light from behind us throwing our shadow on her. I love that the clouds held off here until the eclipse had reached the total stage.

Today I love that there will be work...

Today I Love The Tenacious Ivy And Wild Grape

Today I love the tenacious ivy and wild grape vine clinging to the old brick walls. I love the way they metaphorically shrug their shoulders when you clip them away from windows, doors, and gutters. I love that they would warn you, if you asked and they could talk, not to be surprised when you look away for a moment and look back to find them once again decorating doors and windows, and...

Today I Love The Sky

This tortoise shell sky ...

Today I love that every day when I get up, the first thing I do is check the sky. It's never the same twice, and even when it's solid grey, it's always its very own special shade of grey. Today I love the tortoise shell sky that I found waiting for me this morning.

Today I love that it is Friday and that means the...

Today I Love This Foggy First Full Fall Day

Today I love this foggy, first full fall day. I love the feel of damp air and the chill that reminds me of autumns passed. I love memories of preparing for winter, garden harvesting and stacking wood to be split. I love remembering how warm the stable was on chilly fall mornings. And I love how every day's weather seems to take me back down those paths of my memory.

Today I love that...

Today I Love The Glow Of Dawn

Today I love the glowing thin line of dawn in the east. I love how it looks like the edge of a knife that has cut the trailing end of the blanket of night off to let the day shine through. I love how every morning looks so similar and yet so different. I love when I hear myself saying under my breath "Ah, one of those mornings ... this one looks...

Today I Love People Who Seek Themselves

Today I love people who seek themselves, are looking for themselves. They are looking for the good and they are hoping to cultivate that. Some absent themselves from their communities to do so, while others just spend lots of quiet time looking inward. I love that they are really looking for the ways in which they can show that they are happy, the ways that they can share that happiness with...

Today I Love Morning Skies

Today I love morning skies that look like they've been painted by someone and hung on the horizon. I love that I just made myself laugh with the thought that this sunrise is "life imitating art." I love the feeling of a new day promising things that only new days can promise, the chance for change, the hope of time, the reassurance of perpetual cycles of day and night and spinning seasons.

Today I love...
