Colpoy's Bay

By the bay …

Today I love this random day of rain and wind and cloud and sun, of waves and streams and water everywhere but in my basement. I love that the house I’m in has no basement. I love that the lower level of the cottage seems to be dry so far. I love that there is a fireplace in both the cottage and the house, ’cause wow, is today every a damp and chilly day out. I love the beautiful deep greens and blues of my bay that fill the gap between here and Bruce County and sparkle with sunlight and froth with foam and lace on the tripping tips and edges of waves as they skate across the water in the direction of the day. I love that I am on an adventure this morning, checking on the cottage, and doing my morning writing here. I love that the view from here so far is always stunning. I love that, although it’s chilly and cool, the place seems to be okay. I love that my hands are warming up just fine, wrapped around this cup of cottage coffee. I love that there are cloud shadows one moment and brilliant sun the next.

Today I love that this is Friday, because Fridays have an aura about them that is all their own. I love that there will be an open mic this afternoon as there always is, and I’m feeling much better so I won’t be singing like Kim Karnes today. I love that today will be the third game of the first draw of my second season of curling. How’s that for hitting all the numbers? I love how Fridays make the perfect beginning to weekends and how they seem to take that job seriously.

Today I love that I am who I am. I love that I still remember being sad about having to go to bed because I wanted every day to last forever. I love how I can now wake up easily and take my time collecting my thoughts, and yet I love that there was a time when my eyes would open at the same time that my feet hit the ground and I would be off like a shot to get the day wound up and running at top speed. I love all the different things I am and have been and I love looking forward to all the things I still may be.

Today I love sipping coffee by the ever changing bay.
