Today I Love Evenings That Look Like Paintings

harbour and clearing sky
The beauty of our harbor …

Today I love evenings that look like paintings and I love especially the ones that hold still long enough for me to capture them on my phone. I love how perfect last night turned out to be, it rained all the while we were dragon boating, but we were mostly dressed for it, then on the way home we decided to stop for dinner at our favorite bistro, Oregano, and then when we were walking back to the car in the clearing evening after a wonderful late supper, the harbor showed us her true beauty and I took the opportunity to capture as much of it as I could for you. I love sharing what is shared with me. I love that there is beauty in almost every direction, it is just a matter of interpretation and sometimes a judicious bit of framing. I love that the fallen tree limb from yesterday’s adventures was cleaned right up before the day ended. I love that plans change and so have mine, that I may make it to the cottage this morning to deliver stuff and maybe take care of a few things there and I will be going back there tonight for the weekend, but I will also be returning home today to engage in yet another part of a different adventure and adventures are what I live for.

Today I love that this is the beginning of Summer’s first weekend, this is the solstice, happy Solstice to my pagan friends and to my sun worshiping friends as well. I love that I am on the porch this morning catching the last breaths of Springs parting perfume and waiting for the auspicious time of the Solstice which will occur somewhere around 11:45 apparently and I love that today is the longest day of the year, the day with the most daylight here in the northern hemisphere and the northern hemisphere is where I’m at. I love that my world has exploded with green and all manner of flowers all to take advantage of this time of sunlight. I love that once again the sky is a resilient blue and the air is sweet in the sunlight and cool in the shadows.

Today I love looking forward to the next few days but being consciously aware of the need to enjoy them as they pass rather than lament their passing, eulogizing the last minute wastes the present minute and that means the next minutes topic will be this one and so on. I love that looking back to the past to find things to love has made the present a better past to look back on later … 😉

Today I love sitting in the cool shade of the front porch, drinking coffee, and looking back on how beautiful the harbor was last night.

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.
