Today I Love Peace Of Soul

Morning, nowhere near Scarborough

Today I love peace of soul, the thing that happens when peace of mind meets acceptance of life's realities. I love when people find it, but I love even more when people seek it in a calm and steady way. I love finding myself on the road to that peace more and more these days. I love that this world offers each of us the...

Today I Love The Pale, Cool Light

Promising more ...

Today I love the pale cool light of this northern winter sun. I love how it turns it's tiny corner of the silver white of a snowy January morning to pale golden sweetness. I love that it hoards its strength at this time of year, saving it up in order to keep the glorious promises of spring and summer that it has made. I love that I am not...

Today I Love My Youthful Mind

Good for you ...

Today I love my youthful mind and the many ways that it has refused to grow up. I love that it often behaves like it is only twelve years old. I love that twelve is the perfect age, not too old to forgo thinking about fun kid stuff but not so young that it can't appreciate the exciteent of those adult thoughts. I love that yesterday we found...

Today I Love This Sunny Beginning

Good morning

Today I love this sunny beginning to this glorious day of change. I love that the predawn sky was glowing with the promise of coming spring, even though it is weeks away yet. I love that I am sitting in my Wednesday office with my hair a bit crazy and a wild look on my face as I edit things and write things and I love thinking that people must...

Today I Love Feeling Strong

Did I ever mention that I love ...

Today I love feeling strong and good after a good night's sleep. I love that I still feel the aches from all the work I did yesterday. I love that they don't bother me enough to stop me from doing all the work today. I love that I have errands to run and artwork to do and many words to write, laundry and dishes to...

Today I Love Laughter At Breakfast

Bottoms up ...

Today I love laughter at breakfast as the graceful and dramatic swans diving for food present their bottoms to the air, sometimes in perfect unison, amid the pieces of ice along the shore by our chalet. I love that the chunks of ice that are floating by the chalet are less like pans today and more like what my father would refer to as "bergy bits." I love...

Today I Love The Warming Weather

Ice on the move ...

Today I love the warming weather as the earth makes an effort to ease off on the polar chill that we've been experiencing. I love the goings and goings of natural aspects of my world, like the pans of ice that are suddenly drifting eastward out of our bay to the bigger, chilly Georgian Bay waters. I love that although ducks clearly can fly, they often appear to...

Today I Love Fresh Baked Bread

Bread gets a rise out of me ...

Today I love fresh baked bread whether it came from the market like today or whether I made it myself like last week when the baker at the market was unable to be there. I love Saturday mornings at the market, the people I know, the great things that come from there, the feeling of a community saying "good morning" together and finding new things...
