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 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

J.  On my last day in Toronto, a Sunday, I walked past Rosedale subway and an elderly gentleman was picking up the garbage thrown in the flower beds there.  I wished him good morning and we started chatting.  I commended him for his civic conscience and asked him "But, why you?".  He looked at me, only slightly askance, and replied "My dear girl (yes he called me girl)...if not me, then who?"  Now that's style.  Score another one for Seniors.
