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 quiet and grey, the perfect atmosphere for contemplating all the coming wonders of the remainder of time infinite. I love how sweet it is to contemplate all that is yet to come from the comfort of my living room and my easy chair and my portal to the world right here. I love that I get to write about so many things in my world, that so many of the outlets I have for writing allow me to retell what’s on my mind with changed focus so that it becomes exactly what was needed. I love that, among other fun things, this is what I get to do these days, observe and write. I love how something so fun can end up being such an important part of a life.

Today I love that I’m going to try to get lights on that big old tree again, the ones that were on it that I was going to add to were only half working and were the wrong color, so Tuesday’s endeavors ended with the old lights on two of the smaller trees by the door. I love that there might be a chance that these lights will all be up by the end of today and then I just need to find my timer and this decorating thing will be fork tender and done. I love that I can say that with such conviction, while at the same time I know that nothing that is seasonal is ever really done.

Today I love that I ordered a power converter plug that is good for use in 150 different countries and has USB outlets. I love that it is all part of another adventure whose plans seem to be coming together quite nicely. I love being able to order things on the old Amazon and watch their progress online, though I must say I’m disappointed that the order I placed two days ago that they said would ship yesterday is still in the “We’re preparing your order” stage … must be the holiday shopping madness thing I’m hearing so much about.

Today I love drinking great gulps of coffee while I watch my Amazon order move not at all and while the brilliant gold edge of dawn’s light peaks under the cloud’s rim and over my shoulder.

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.
