Today I Love Solitude

Sun pierced clouds ...

Today I love solitude and the easy way it finds me and holds me and takes me wandering through my past to the places I've been happy. I love that it reminds me that I don't need to hold on to things physically, I can take them with me in my heart. I love the calm after I've been upset, that place where I can assess my expectations...

Today I Love Healing Mornings

National Coffee Day? It's like my own personal holiday!

Today I love healing mornings. I love waking up restless and ready for the day to begin. I love that I was awake for several minutes before I remembered that I'd had dental surgery yesterday, it's healing that quickly. I love that apparently I have good bone material and enough of it to make the procedure fast and easy so that my dental...

Today I Love Sleeping Soundly

Mare's tails in morning skies

Today I love sleeping soundly when it happens. I love that I slept through to the morning without waking, or at least without remembering I woke if I did. I love feeling rested, even if I'm still feeling a bit battered. That's just the life I live, and a bit battered is a whole lot better than beaten down. I love that my head seems to have stopped...

Today I Love Gentle Rain

Soft Grey clouds and gentle rain ...

Today I Love gentle rain. I love the way rain often begins, slowly and cautiously, like a new lover's gentle and tentative first touch. I love the way it can be so persistent, so insistent, so sure of itself, and you soon realize that rain only began gently so as not to scare you away. I love the way rain touches every inch of the part...

Today I Love Sunday Morning Laziness

there is a rose that grows ...

Today I love Sunday morning laziness as part of my recovery regimen. I love that I have zero vertigo today and aside from a slight headache, I feel fine. I love that I have been able to keep active mostly in my head so that my body could recuperate from whatever had my world spinning in crazy circles. I love that I got to the market...

Today I Love Spin Free Saturday

♫♪"The sky is quite blue ..."♪♫

Today I love spin free Saturday with the world that I can see staying right where it's supposed to stay ... so far. I love what a good nights sleep can do for vertigo. I love that I'm fully aware that it could return anytime and I'm ready for it. I love that I can still write when my head spins, that I can...

Today I Love Autumn’s Wet Arrival

The sky so wanted to be blue ...

Today I love Autumn's wet arrival, rain drops dancing on the pavement, performing acrobatics with the leaves in adagio style, sailing seemingly weightless from leaf to branch and then to street where they land and then leap one last time sideways to land perfectly. Everyone of them scores a six point oh, beat that you other seasons. I love the leaves laughing and shaking themselves...

Today I Love Autumn’s Arrival

Autumn's kit bag of color

Today I love Autumn's arrival, complete with her kit bag of paints and brushes and grand intentions to redecorate. I love that she is a temperamental artist and will never be satisfied with the beauty she creates, starting out with oils in brilliant colors and ending up washing over everything with thin beige water colors and swearing she'll get it right next year. I love that Autumn...

Today I Love The Smell Of Open Water

Shuddering clouds

Today I love the smell of open water when I'm out on it and there's no wind. I love that even though I live n a fresh water shore, sometimes the overwhelming smell of it can take me right to the ocean. I love the perfect weather that we're having, the fact that the bay is still warm enough to swim in and the soft evenings and easy nights that September...
