Today I Love Last Night’s Red Gold Moon

Moon departing

Today I love last night’s red gold moon and how it revealed itself to us just as it was getting ready to set. I love that I imagined it saying, “I have to go now, and I didn’t have much time to spend with you but I wanted to make sure I got to say goodbye …” I love my world, my life, the way it plays out in my head. I love how things in nature seem more alive and animated to me than they did when I was trying so hard to adult in my twenties and thirties and even my forties. I love being in my fifties and I’ve already decided to be even younger in my sixties, so look out world, this is going to get good! I love that I am swamped with good things to do today and I truly love that every day’s good things start out right here on this blog with me cataloguing the good in my life. I love that there is so much to love about my life that I just don’t have the time to catalogue the bad stuff so it can just fffft off! I love that I have two more things to compose this morning. Yay, writing stuff!

Today I love that I am loading up gig gear for an early noon thing where I get to interview some friends and hear them play for future airing to the world at large. I love that this is the beginning of a new direction for my life, that I’ve decided to do this project for a year and see what comes of it, and that I’m pretty damned excited in a happy way to be doing this. I love how much of my work I do because I feel that it supports and grows and enhances my community’s artistic aspect. I love doing things that enrich my life at the same time that they make opportunities for my artist friends.

Today I love that I am once again on the front porch though it’s pretty cool out this morning. I love that the cold air tastes energizing and fresh, possibly because cold air contains more oxygen than warm air does, and that’s a fact you can look up for yourself if you don’t believe me. I love that we tried out a whole bunch of different kayaks last night and I now feel like I understand the differences in all the options available yet still am no closer to knowing what I want for the bigger water at the cottage.

Today I love drinking coffee while dreaming about the moons wistful goodbye last night.

Today I Love Last Night’s Red Gold Moon

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.
