Today I love this cool soft day that slid in behind the storms of last night. I love that after the rain and the thunder and lightning that lulled me to sleep I awoke in the dark of night to see stars outside my window. I love that in the house of my dreams my room would have both eastern and western exposure so that there would be sunrises and sunsets; maybe someday, eh?. I love that the Prime Minister of my country is coming to my town today, even though I am not there to see him. I love that it sounds like my boss at the Hub is going to get to rub elbows with him and that she has already turned down my request to ask him to do a show ID for my radio show, “Hi, my name is Justin Trudeau, and you’re listening to Kelly Babcock on Georgian Bay Roots Radio.” good thing, ’cause I don’t know if I could ever top that one. I love that I have a lot of things to keep me busy today and for the rest of the week and weekend, family coming, a radio show to write and record, and all the other stuff that normally has to be handled. I love that I am still writing after more than ten years since my last career change, though I am also constantly doing new things that fit in with writing, such as broadcasting and performing both music and spoken word.
Today I love that the dragon boat returned to its natural habitat last evening and we rode the dragon up to the mill dam and back to her berth and the crew were in fine form and paddled well. I love that we all took to the water like we hadn’t missed a stroke, let alone a week and a half. I love that it rained but it was rain we could plausibly deny the existence of because it just never really got up much of an attitude and none of us got soaked. I love that I am in my Wednesday office where I might have a chance of getting all the things done that are staring at me from the different bullet points of my to do list.
Today I love radio show ideas that get me excited to be writing my script. I love that I slipped out of the house without a sweater or jacket and in the cool of this day I am reveling in my ability to endure the chill of this decidedly autumnal day. I love how today is a warning of the season’s change that is coming. I love all the seasons and I am looking forward to them, the surest sign that Summer is on its way again is the coming of Autumn.
Today i love drinking coffee in my Wednesday office while my little Scenic City enjoys the company of our Prime Minister.
