Today I Love Finding Pictures On My Phone

Looking at the wonders of another part of the world

Today I love finding pictures on my phone that were sent to me, and remembering where they were taken and what was going on at the time. I love when they are suddenly more beautiful than they seemed at the time because at the time they were in the context of being in a wonderful place but now they remind me...

Today I Love The Warming Water

Island floating in the distance

Today I love the warming water of the bay. I love that I was in swimming yesterday and that it was not just jumping in and seeing how quickly I could get out again. I love how I have been swimming in this water every year for most of my life. I love how big it is. I love how there are islands in my view that for...

Today I Love The Eugenia Power Dragon Boat Team

Dragon the best out of my day!

Today I love the Eugenia Power Dragon Boat Team of the Grey Bruce Dragon Boat Club. I love that they welcomed three of us from the Owen Sound Póg Mo Thóin team with open arms at the Hamilton Regatta yesterday. I love the determination they showed when we went head to head against a large group of dragon boat teams from all...

Today I Love The Dragons

Road coffee ...

Today I love the dragons whose spirits live in our boats and crews as we race for fun and honor. I love that we were up before the sun and on the road to gather at the water in Hamilton. I love that our team from Grey and Bruce are passionate and determined, that we will do our best and that our best will be good enough. I...

Today I Love Getting Things Done

Another perfect day

Today I love getting things done and yesterday I did just that even though I ended up not feeling that great. I love that there is just a little bit of laundry to finish up. I love that I got some writing done on my radio show script. I love that I got some work done on the back end of the and...

Today I Love Having A Day Off

Kind of like a day off ... sort of

Today I love having a day off. I don't have a day off, but it feels like a day off in some ways so I'm going with that. I love when days at work feel particularly positive and it feels like the day before summer holidays or something like it. I love the sounds of boat's horns as they work...

Today I Love The Lazy Moon

Lazy moon, shining when it's already light out ...

Today I love the lazy moon that puts no effort into trying to align itself with night time and is just as likely to show up at 8:30 in the morning and say, "You wanted me here when?" I love how it just hangs around near lamp posts waiting for anyone to notice it, but it doesn't really care if you do...

Today I Love The Monarch Butterflies

Monarch visits

Today I love the Monarch butterflies and that they have found the milkweed out back by the deck. I love the way they tease us by lighting there and hanging out and then disappearing and then coming back again (or maybe it's another one coming along?) before we can go look to see if there are any eggs there. I love that there is a goodly amount of...

Today I Love Voices From The Past

Feeding time ...

Today I love voices from the past, like words of cursive that seem to reside in wood grain until we look at them in just the right light, they come sometimes just when we need them and echo through our lives from suddenly until they deliver their message. I love that last night I was reminded of my childhood in a wonderful but sad way. I love that I will...

Today I Love Moving Slowly In This Heat

Coffee by the lake

Today I love moving slowly in this heat, letting the day unfold at its own pace, taking a break from pushing it forward. I love that today is Canada day. I love that my country grows closer each day to becoming a representation of a global community by the diversity of the people who share it. I love that we are finally accepting the blemishes of...
