Today I love easing into this busy week of activities and fun. I love that I am doing so many things and adding more to the list almost daily. I love that yesterday was writing, yard work, laundry, cooking, and dragon boating; that today is writing, IT work, and setting up for the election tomorrow; that tomorrow is writing, the election, and tearing down from that, and that Friday will be writing and going golfing. I love that in all of this I’m looking at learning to be a radio personality, and still planning episodes of the TV show I’ve taken on hosting. I love that my life sounds like total madness and from the inside it even looks like total madness, yet at any given moment it seems calm and steady and moving right along at a sedate and respectful pace. I love all the things I do and get to do. I love this life, this wonderful, exotic, fascinating and frequently changing life of many activities and adventures. I love that one of the biggest changes I have made in recent times is to start saying “Yes!” when asked if I would like to do almost anything. I love even more that another change I’ve made recently is to actually ask if I might be allowed to do things I think would be fun. I love that I often get to try things I would have thought were out of my grasp, just because I ask to be allowed to.
Today I love that I have a few ideas for articles and they may or may not get published but I’m looking forward to writing the shorter ones just to keep in practice. I love that even though I’m branching out in the things that I do, there seems to be a consistent overlap that makes me comfortable. I love that I am doing so many things that are informed and made comfortable for me by all the things I’ve learned, all the stuff my mind has gathered up in these many years of my life.
Today I love good baking that can be found in cafés like my Wednesday office. I love that in these days of confusion, some things that would have seemed odd as recently as ten years ago now are very commonplace, things like someone sitting in a coffee shop and “working on a computer” or “reading their phone.” I love that tomorrow I get to be a part of the “machine” that allows my province to decide how it will be governed for the next few years. I love that, even though people seem to have short memories, it works out in the end because we swing back and forth from one extreme to another in the governments we choose and that would seem to balance out what happens.
Today I love drinking my coffee while I watch all the fun and exciting bits of my life going by at its sedate and respectful, yet mad, mad pace.
