Today I love signs of caring, like when messengers goes wonky and doesn’t show the incoming half of a conversation but I can clearly see that the other person is typing so I start to worry and send messages saying as much and the other person then starts worrying about me and whether I’m alright. I love fixing words so much that when the Facebook shows me things I posted years ago and there are mistakes in them … I go ahead and edit that stuff, ’cause it drives me a little bit crazy to see them. I love finding new things to do to keep my life fiscally viable and I really love it when those things involve writing or editing. I love making up stuff, so writing fiction is among my favorite pastimes. I love writing non-fiction almost as much as I love writing fiction. And I love editing other people’s work because then I get to see the brilliance of other minds at the same time that I get to make their work the best it can be and when I’m doing that I almost love editing more than writing. I love writing words in my Wednesday office, far from home, but not so far that it feels like I’m not at home here. I love that I have just over one week left on this script for antibiotics and I will be doing the dance of joy within two days of that ending I am sure of it.
Today I love looking forward to curling soon. I love that I dreamed about curling last night. I love that in my dream the club had been renovated to look like some kind of half military half nuclear power station installation with separate, giant refrigerator doors that led to each sheet of ice, and when I woke up it took me a few minutes to convince myself that wasn’t real because it seemed so vivid. I love that there are a lot of newer curlers in my league this year so I won’t stand out so much. I love that this is my third year of curling.
Today I love pineapple in the porridge. I love that I got so many things done yesterday. I love that there is a freezer in the house now and the fridge freezer is already looking a lot more organized. I love that the dock and all of its parts are out of the bay for the winter and I can relax about that and move on to the next thing that needs doing. I love that the seasons are changing, but today feels like summer.
Today I love drinking coffee in my Wednesday office while I get ready to write all the words.
