Today I Love Best Intentions

Hanging at the water front ...

Today I love best intentions and the fact that that is the most anyone can have going in to any situation. Sometimes, no matter what we do, our efforts fail to create the perfect result, our work falls short of making the difference we were hoping for, but if our plans were honourable and our understanding of the situation was unbiased even if incomplete, then...

Today I Love Being In The Capital

Canoe see where I am?

Today I love being in the capital city of my country, Ottawa. I love that it is a big city with lots of things to see and do. I love it's familiar sort of feel, even though I've only ever been here a few times, because it is my country's capital. I love that I, like all Canadians, own this town. It is mine. Not the...

Today I Love Early Starts

My coffee maker ...

Today I love early starts to my day. I love sleeping well, even if I don't sleep in. I love waking up feeling rested. I love having the morning to myself, even though I'm not a "by myself" kind of person. I love the well manicured little street we're staying on and the fact that the house we're staying in has eight bedrooms and seems to go...

Today I Love Morning Sunlight

Pondering the day, or maybe not ...

Today I love morning sunlight on green summer trees. I love the way those tree's leaves glitter like diamonds, Summer's little light show for us to enjoy while the prismatic glitter of ice and crystallized snow is absent from our world. I love Summer's sultry subtle ways, her warm and lush yet laissez faire attitude, her long lingering looks that suggest she'll be...

Today I Love People

A wealth of strawberries ...

Today I love people who choose to find common ground. I love people who seek the ways to connect their communities. I love people who actively seek out the good in others rather than imagining just enough bad to make a negative decision. I love people like my friend May Ip who looks to learn and teach as much culture from as many places as she...

Today I Love Summer Market Produce

Sunny coffee

Today I love summer market produce and all the wonderful amazing things that are available right now. I love strawberries and garlic scape and asparagus and bacon and bread and maple syrup and so many other things. I love breakfast at the market as usual, and all the people I see there. I love how people are so friendly and how some of them will often go out of their...

Today I Love Jazz

Jazz is worth love ...

Today I love jazz and the people who play and sing it. I love libraries that embrace their communities and offer space for alternative community activities such as ... Jazz! I love my city's library very much, from the newer more modern part to the stately old Carnegie hall that it started in, and I love Thornbury library and its funky architecture with its turret...

Today I Love Art In Life

Coral bells and speedwell, lady's mantle and columbine

Today I love art in life. I love the way that almost everyone does something artistic, even if they don't know it. I love how people will have one little thing they do a special way that makes them different from others and that way they do that thing is because they love doing that. I love people who recognize that love and expand on...

Today I Love My New Glasses

I see ...

Today I love my new glasses and the fact that I can now read my phone on sunny days outside. I love that they are both progressive and transitions lenses so I can read, and drive, and photograph, and text, and spectate, and walk safely and comfortably without having to change glasses. I love that I still can wear my other two pairs of glasses, but I think...
