Today I Love Short Drives

Good place to ponder ...

Today I love short drives and how my usual Wednesday commute feels just like that, a short drive, after yesterday's four hundred kilometer drive. I love when I am on the road lots and get used to driving for miles and miles and how good it can feel to just roll over miles of beautiful scenery especially at this time of wonder when the seasons are...

Today I Love The Red Wing Blackbird

Adventuring gear ...

Today I love the red wing blackbird and its rusty gate-hinge noise as it drops in to announce how brave it is and why all should fear its mighty presence until some twig snaps and it is spooked and gone again. I love the welling up of signs of spring that abound for all to see so long as they are looking for them and not wasting time...

Today I Love The Magic Show

Setting the stage

Today I love the magic show that Bruce County put on for us. I love that our view out the cottage windows over the water is of Bruce County and that this morning when we got up, the stage had been set for a show. I love that the water had iced over but the sun started opening up different spots out there like part of...

Today I Love Going Home Again

I'm a sap for syrup

Today I love going home again for a bit this afternoon to the village I will always call my home town. I love that there is maple syrupy things going on there, that we'll get to eat a late brunchy lunch breakfast thing in the church basement made up of all things maple and then tour some of the sugar operations that always spring up....

Today I Love Being Normal

Just a normal sunny day

Today I love being normal in as much as I went for the results of a procedural test and I'm not normal, but my abnormality is as normal as it can be and so I have nothing to worry about for another two years. Is that clear? I love that I've been trying harder to take care of myself. I love that the doctor's considered opinion is...

Today I Love Sunny Snowy Days

Sipping in the sunshine

Today I love sunny snowy days that remind me exactly how what time of the year this is. I love that we needed snow in the last few weeks of winter and I was worried about the land and now maybe there will be a little bit of help for it. I love that most of the power is back on here in my pretty Grey and...

Today I Love Moody Morning Scenes

Brooding and moody morning

Today I love moody morning scenes like the one outside my window in the back yard. I love when quiet mornings take the time to set the stage for introspection and contemplation. I love that quiet mornings are the perfect times to write and dream and remember. I love how they seem fully aware that they have a day to get on with but are at the...

Today I Love The Calm

Doing some self editing ....

Today I love the calm of those who respond rather than react to things that seem irrational. I love that I can consciously do that if I'm present and aware. I love that typing in long diatribes of vitriolic acid often takes enough time for me to realize that I'm reacting instead of responding. I love that often the best response is to ignore some things and...
