Today I Love Music In My Community

Where once a meadow stood ...

Today I love music in my community and how I always seem to find some when I need it. I love that I got to attend the 25th annual Noon Hour Concert Series Finale last night and it was pretty darned spectacular. I love listening to any kind of music when I'm in the mood for it, but some music suits any mood and last night's...

Today I Love That Love Always Wins

Dark roast brightened by butter cream

Today I love that love always wins just because love always tries to move us forward and even just momentum or a little bit of forward pressure is better than standing still or moving backwards. I love that love can fill a life so full of joy and happiness, and I know this because my life is overflowing. I love waking up in the night...

Today I Love Being Content

More sky indecision ...

Today I love being content with my life at this very moment. I love that there is still more of it to live so I don't have to settle for what I've lived thus far. I love that if I did have to settle for a life this long I've done enough to fill it this far. I love the ragged gasps of wind that...

Today I Love Opportunities To …

Waiting for the tantrum

Today I love opportunities to make life bigger and fuller and better. I love that every day offers these chances, but some days offer chances at bigger prizes and those days remind us to look for the opportunities in every other day of our lives. I love when even on the bad days I am able to find the good, but on some days the good is...

Today I Love Passion

Ready for the oven

Today I love passion that leads people to the things they were meant to do, the friends they were meant to have, and the lovers they were meant to know. I love how it permeates much of our art and I love that this is the reason that we need art, to assure ourselves of the good in life and the reasonableness of being passionate about that...

Today I Love Quiet Cottage Mornings

Music on the shoreline

Today I love quiet cottage mornings. I love the oddly bittersweet goodbye when a guest leaves in the early morning, happy that they're safely one there way yet sorry that they will be missing the things that the cottage has to offer. I love that I feel like we received a gift because of having had Shawna play her music on the shoreline last night. I...

Today I Love Music With Friends

I got this!!!

Today I love music with friends from near and far. I love that tonight is the cottage show with Shawna Caspi and I admit that I've been raving about it but that's because I've been looking forward to it. I love that things are looking very good for me to be performing with my band mate Rebecca instead of being a solo opener act. I love that...

Today I Love That My Truck Is Home

All the things ... and coffee

Today I love that my truck is home. I love how trucks that belong to me always give so much of themselves at Summerfolk construction that they break down sometime during that two week period. I love that this one actually managed to finish up what it needed to do after the breakdown and before it was fixed. I love...

Today I Love The Mighty Road

Mighty road coffee cup

Today I love the mighty road, the way it tests me, wears me down yet hones me to a fine edge, strengthens me at the same time that it shows me my weaknesses and what I need to work on to continue to survive. I love that I drove well over 300 miles already today and I still need to get home when I'm...

Today I Love The Considerate Rain

Until next year ...

Today I love the considerate rain that waited until today to fall. I love that it is falling gently now as it did before the weekend, and that though we have work to do still it is work that can be done in the rain even though we'll be getting wet. I love that my new to me truck just died because that...
