Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Good morning J.

...and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too....so I'm thinking about our beloved Johnny O'Donahue this morning and the of the time I spent with him at one of his three day workshops.
In his gentle and soft spoken voice he looked at us and said....

"Just stop all this spiritual talk all the time, just lighten up, go out and dance, and laugh and have some fun for goodness sake, and have a pint for me while you're at it!"




"There's a great spring in you
all bud and blossom
and March laughter
I've always loved...

...I look around and see
the last days of winter
broken away
for all those
listening or watching,
all come to life now
with the first pale sun on their face
for many a month,
remembering how to laugh"

- from 'Looking out from Clare'
J. O'Donahue
