Today I Love Music On The Peninsula

coffee and banana bread
Trying to keep up with a fast paced life …

Today I love music on the peninsula being played by our friends, Our Shotgun Wedding, and their guests at Rachel’s Bakery in Lion’s Head Ontario. I love that we’re going to see them today because we’ve only seen them once this year so far and that won’t do at all. I love that I can’t get the music of Friday at the open mic out of my head and I love that we talked about it last night for a little bit with friends at a dinner party. I love that we had such a good time with people last night, talking and catching up is fun to do and fun to observe. I love hearing good people laughing happily. I love that the weekend is going well and looks like it has every chance of being a great success. I love how easily words flow when I’m writing about love and am surrounded by it. I love that the liner is now in my duster and that seems like it is just enough for the current weather. I love the current weather, the air is clear and clean, the temperature is good for keeping groceries from going bad, and the sweaters are starting to come out of drawers and closets and remind us of how nice it is to be comforted.

Today I love the seeds of plans for music recording and thoughts of how to make it the best it can be. I love that I’m hoping to start on a few tracks this winter, though I am also determined to get my book’s first draft completed before spring as well. I love that there are so many things I want to get done and that they are all creative things. I love that I cannot choose between them all and the pressure to get them all done is pretty great. I love that I now recognize how that pressure can actually keep these things from happening if I let it push me around.

Today I love looking forward to driving through autumn scenery. I love cold cereal for breakfast every now and then. I love hoping for change at the same time that I feel unsure about leaving the past in the past. I love the excitement of recognizing that being alive means moving forward in my life. I love realizing that life is only wasted if you try to hold onto it and keep it from being spent. I love that knowing life is going past and savoring it as it goes gets me more out of it than trying to hold onto it and hold it still, because that is when life will pass you by.

Today I love sipping coffee and hanging on for the ride … and trying not to spill anything along the way.

Today I Love Music On The Peninsula

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.
