Today I love left handed people and the way they look at life from a slightly different perspective. I love that, although I am mostly right handed, I’m mixed dominant enough to understand a little of what it is like to be left handed in a right handed world. I love that when a left handed person uses my phone to take a picture, although it is displayed on my phone properly, it is always upside down when it gets to my computer. I love that I can easily rotate the image 180 degrees if I want to. I love that I didn’t bother because I love left handed people. I love that today while we were on the road we saw two deer in a field, a great blue heron floating effortlessly above us, and a bunch of bears on the look out for a man on foot. I love that all the bears wanted was to ask us about said man on foot and whether we’d seen him when they flagged us down and they kindly never mentioned that I might have been going a wee tad bit faster than I was supposed to be. Thanks, bears, and thanks for looking after our safety on the roads.
Today I love that all the wild life I saw on the road reminded me of two things, how precious life is, and how lucky we are to be alive to bear witness to each life. I love that I’ve been thinking about life and living more and more.I love looking around at my friends and their families, their children and siblings and parents, and thinking about how random and how beautiful people are and life is. I love the warm feeling I get just sitting back quietly and watching lives unfold. And I love that no one notices me when I sit back quietly, ’cause that’s not what I’m noted for. 😉
Today I love the breakfast special, over easy, whole wheat toast, sausage and ham and bacon and home fries and that one pancake with syrup thank you very much. I love that all the big long driving is over for a while, and I love that I still love the road and the sights one sees. I love that today is such a beautiful day, last weekend we drove in a winter storm and today we were bombing down the road with the windows down and in shirtsleeves.
Today I love sipping a quiet coffee after putting five hundred kilometers behind me (310 miles).
