Today I Love Children At Play

Backlit window blind
Awakening to a dappled morning window.

Today I love children at play when their cares have been abandoned and all is sea shore and sunshine. I love how when they have troubles or get into trouble, their memories are such that they can often bounce from that right back into having fun. I love that there are times when I am still like that myself. I love that when I woke up this morning the sunlight on the window blind was so alluring that I had to take a photo of it. I love that I am again outdoors and writing on this beautiful morning, but today I have a view of the bay just down at the end of the lawn. I love how my mind reels with the ideas and possibilities of a studio here where I could write and compose and play music and possibly record hash tracks to my heart’s content. I love that, as mixed up and crazy as our world is right now, moments of bliss can still take me to places of sheer and utter happiness. I love that my bare feet are on the patio here, and the lawn in just a few feet away, and the water is just a few dozen yards away and the next county is across the water just two or so miles away and that water is connected to the great lakes and the St Lawrence and the Atlantic ocean and from here it reaches out to the whole world. I love how vast and yet microscopic our world is.

Today I love that we will be packing up and getting ready to head home soon to get ready for another week. I love that my life has gotten to the point where weekdays and weekends are almost on a par for being enjoyable. I love that, although I never liked hustling and bustling and being constantly on the go, much of my life is that level of activity now and I am enjoying it rather a lot. I love that I never know more than what is in my calendar of what is ahead for me, that work is never the same thing two days in a row and yet I am still doing the very things I love to do.

Today I love waffles for breakfast. I love how sweet the air was last night when we were toasting marshmallows and making s’mores. I love that we saw the ISS go by twice last night.I love the vista from the cottage where I can see such a broad view of Bruce County that I can see the shadows of clouds as they drift by.

Today I love drinking coffee while i write and thinking back on this mornings lazy sleeping in and waking up to the sun dappled blinds.

Today I Love Children At Play

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 on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of 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 am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with 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.
