Today I Love That Brilliant Dawn

Morning gold

Today I love that brilliant dawn whose edge of gold was all we got to see under the rim of the cover of clouds that fit neatly onto our sphere of vision. I love when morning puts on such a show and the world feels like it has been promised everything and it knows it just has to wait for it all to come true. I love that the day is...

Today I Love Contingencies

Sunny streets

Today I love contingencies that are meant to make things run smoothly when there are big changes coming. I love that I'm looking for ways to maintain all my responsibilities while I go on holidays. I love that this column is one of the things I feel more determined to keep current. I love that I am really going on an adventure and I am amazed at how...

Today I Love This Balmy Day

Good morning

Today I love this balmy day in late November with the temperature already in the forties and promising to creep up into the fifties. I love that there is an intention on my part to get at that tree lighting in the front yard and I've only got a couple of errands to run so that has a good chance of getting started this morning and maybe finished too ... we'll...

Today I Love Being Rich

Après gym ...

Today I love being rich in all the ways that really count. I love that I have love in my life. I love that I have the ability to find beauty in so many situations. I love that I see clearly that finding the negativity in situations makes them more difficult to appreciate and makes life harder to enjoy, and I love that I do not do that...

Today I Love Slow Sweet Sundays

Sunday easiness

Today I love slow sweet Sundays and their warm and wonderful way of filling in their half of the weekend with calmness and joy and that sense of everything being just the way it should be. I love that this weekend has been so full that it feels like it has already been three or four days long and yet, here's a Sunday, all of it, waiting to...

Today I Love Holiday Light Projectors

Festive decorating

Today I love holiday light projectors and I love that we bought a two pack of them today. I love that last year we talked about getting one for the outside of the house and I said I'd want to aim it across the street at the neighbors' house so we could watch it from our window. I love that this year the neighbors across the street got one and...

Today I Love Black Friday

Coffee at the cottage on Black Friday

Today I love black Friday and how crazy it is here in Canada now that we have adopted that practice. I love that there were apparently nearly fifteen people lined up at the Walmart door when they opened this morning, and that's what we call madness here in Canada. I love that they were so surly and grumpy and angry that, rumor has it,...

Today I Love Looking Forward

And then the snow fell

Today I love looking forward and seeing all the potential for joy and happiness and love. I love that, although things can go bad, I've realized that to waste time worrying about things that can go wrong just makes the damage from those things worse. I love that if things I might have worried about don't go wrong and I haven't been worrying about them then there's no...

Today I Love The Basics

A good place to enjoy a cup of coffee

Today I love the basics, like laundry getting done and food prepared for the next little while and getting caught up on my writing and figuring out how to sort out problems so they can become "not problems." I love that my pharmacist called because she noticed I hadn't gotten my script refilled and she was worried I had forgotten....
