Today I love synchronicity like two people dreaming of the same thing the same night and in both cases the dream resolving in similar ways, it’s nearly enough to make one think there might be something to prescience. I love living a life so happily entwined with my surroundings that things like that seem to happen. I love how often I laugh because I am pleasantly surprised by something and yet I laugh often enough because of the joy of expecting something wonderful or joyous or perfect to happen just the way it did. I love that if you expect adventure you can find it and if you find what you expect there is a joy in that. I love that my life is full of the question, “What’s next?” and that fills me with wonder and happiness and left no time for me to ask, “Can I have that, please?” and that has made a lot of difference. I love that I am too busy looking for the good in what is and what was to grumble about the bad in what is or the disappointment I may face in the future. I love that life is easily loved, or easily judged, and you get to choose which you’ll do and that choice will be made. I love that no matter if you’ve chosen to judge … you can change your mind.
Today I love that yesterday I was a God! I love that I got to stand in for the God of Good Fortune as he was busy overseeing the whole operation and so I assume that all around the world there were folks like me reminding the people of the world that it is a New Year and this is their chance to seek their fortune for the start of the year and try to hold on to it through out the year’s balance. I love that I got to be part of the celebration of Chinese New Year here in my town. I love that I got to hang out with some of the nicest people I know.
Today I love that our Christmas tree is still here in our great room, and though it has had its decorations removed and it is losing its needles I love that it still smells of tree, rich and woody and sweet in its own very real way. I love that it will be going out into the back yard soon and that there is a plan to use it for a fire at the cottage. I love that it has taken up that big corner of the room for so long that I am not sure if the empty space will seem strange when it is gone or if memory will just kick in and I’ll feel like this is familiar.
Today I love drinking coffee while I, slowly and with a little sadness, say goodbye to our first Christmas tree together.
