Today I Love This Happy Weekend

Today I love this happy weekend where I get to rest while others entertain me. I love that last night I saw so many acts from many places, Sarah Harmer and Suzie Vinnick from Ontario, Bryden Gwiss Kiwenzie my part of this world, The Hut People from the UK, Calan from Wales, and The Polky Village Band from Eastern Europe and Toronto, and that doesn’t include the tweeners that played accoustic sets while the stage was changed over between acts. I love that this is why I do what I did last week and why I’ll do what I do next week to change the park back to a park. I love that this is why I’ll do it all again next year. I love that that was only one evening of music, and there are two days and evenings left yet. I love the eclectic crash and echo, roar and rumble, blast and resonate that is the spectrum of sound that can be found at Summerfolk. I love that you can go with high expectations of quality and not be disappointed. I love that you can go to Summerfolk with no idea of what to expect for genre and be wildly overjoyed with the selection of amazing acts.

Today I love that we are going to jump in the bay this morning if everything works out well. I love that I will be seeing my long lost niece and her two children, my long lost nephews, if plans fit together and add up properly. I love that I will be back at the park and immersing myself in more entertainment, my continuing remuneration for the work I’ve done and will do. I love that I keep telling people to volunteer for the show. I love that a new guy, Ron, volunteered this year even though he wasn’t available for the weekend to come to the show. I love people who know that good work is its own reward. I love that I love to do good work as well, and the festival is just bonus for me.

Today I love the cooler air we’ve got today. I love the smell of big water when it’s percolating under an onshore breeze. I love the idea I have for a photograph I want to take later today. I love the big boldness of the earth and I love trying to capture that in photographs. I love that the market was still busy even though a quarter of the vendors were not there because they had booths at Summerfolk.

Today I love drinking coffee in the front porch office while I get my writing done and make my plans to squeeze all the joy and happiness that I can out of this day into the cup of life that I drink from.

Today I Love This Happy Weekend

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.
