Today I Love This Windy Morning

Glaze on blue silk ...
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 that I am not well and that I’ll spend the day going from being defiant and doing things I probably shouldn’t to taking it easy and resting and making excuses for why I am not doing things that I should do. I’ve already moved several boxes of books, but I nearly didn’t bother to put out the garbage. I love that at the last minute I realized that I’d nag myself for a week if the garbage didn’t get put out.

Today I love that I will spend the day at home in the hopes that I can make it to a friends farewell party tonight. When someone in your life moves away, it is a strange collection of feelings, loss and hope at the same time. I hope you succeed brilliantly in your new town, my friend. I hope you find another place that is a fit, I hope it is an even better fit than this was.

Today I love coffee, I’ll just have another cup and keep watching those skies and resting and writing … ’til something needs doing.

Today I Love This Windy Morning

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or more generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about having ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
