Today I love moving into the swirling future mists of times to come. I love that so far we’ve got this and though I may be being optimistic I can guarantee you that we cannot succeed in the future without having come this far and having a positive attitude, so optimism is not just acceptable but mandatory. I love that I am solving problems in my head that I don’t have but see clearly as possible future issues. I love that we are in forward gear here at el castillo azul and the renos are moving slowly but steadily forward, ’cause the forward gear we are in is low low four wheel drive. I love that yesterday I cleaned up a bunch of stuff and some more moving of stuff is on for today as well. I love that the damned old truck is running again with nothing more than a battery charge for an intervention. I love that I am contemplating changing the tires on the car soon, Spring is certainly here. I love that it snowed last night, what a wild show that was. I love that I joked about it causing people to bring out the early Spring whine, I’m too funny. I love that nature is still pretty reliable, it will snow in spring in our latitude and we will feel like we were too special for that to have happened and act like it never happened before, well, some of us will.
Today I love that we attended an open mic online last night and we also played two handed Mahjong at the same time and I’m going to tell you you cannot do that out in public, people would complain about the noise of the tiles, another isolation win. I love that the air is cleaner these days. I love that there are fewer accidents these days. I love that there are people getting to know their families again these days. I love that there are people who still go to work and that they now know their own true worth to humanity, thank you for your service.
Today I love that there are people who pick up our garbage at the end of our driveway and they do it with the reliability of the trains in England or the mail in North America, which is to say that almost nothing can stop them it seems. I love that the people in the grocery stores keep working and doing their best to be cheerful and helpful and their best is more than their remuneration should require of them but they do this for us anyway. I love that there is coffee on its way to our front door, the absolute proof that even in a pandemic the world is still working hard to be all it can be.
Today I love sipping my coffee while the sun works diligently to remove last night’s snow fall and prepare our corner of the world for Tuesday’s forecasted snowfall.
