Today I Love Saturday Gigs

Something interesting over there?

Today I love Saturday gigs that I'm looking forward to with excitement. I love that today's show came about because of my best friends from high school. There truly is nothing that can make you wealthy the way friendship can, for true wealth is living in a world where you can find the ways that you fit in easily and the one place that you fit in...

Today I Love The Way Robins Talk Of Spring

A rabbit imitating me when I hear the birds ...

Today I love the way robins talk f spring. I'm fairly certain their vocabulary is limited to talk of eating and reproduction, but they certainly talk a lot more in the spring. I love there musical chirping, and I particularly love how they seem to be the alarm clocks for the rest of the bird world. I've often woken up...

Today I Love My Own Tenacity

Lonely snow clump in the hail

Today I love my own tenacity and how I've pushed myself to keep mostly quiet while I let this bug run its course. I love that I've done little more than practice and write for nearly two days now. I love that I feel a bit better again this morning and I'm convinced that it is from taking care of myself. I love that if...

Rainy day deck - not Paris

I love that when I have to go out somewhere in the rain I'm always hoping to see some...

Today I Love The Calm Of Morning

A still, calm day

Today I love the calm of morning. I love that after a busy day yesterday that included going out late to see a favorite group, The Swampstompers, this morning I can feel the easy way of this day. It must have settled over everything in the night, like a light rain, and yet the rain isn't expected until this evening. I love that there...

Today I Love Things That Work Out

Another super sunny Saturday

Today I love things that work out, like road trips that are planned on the fly that have connections with friends made as the trip unfolds. I love April days of uncertain weather that clearly do their best to behave. This bright and blue skied Saturday would surely fit that description, I feel it struggling to bring us the best it can and I...

Today I Love The Watercolor Sky

Watercolor sky

Today I love the watercolor sky that's hung as backdrop outside my east facing window. I love the blues and greys washed over the bulk of that sky and the brilliant whites and golds where the clouds are thinner. And the little bits where I am sure I can see ... maybe ,,, yes .... some blue. I think ... I love the eastern edge where the clouds...
