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

style is ageless

V. I love your 'lady in the elevator' story J. ...
...I worked hard over the weekend at my new place, cleaning the old wooden floors, painting, mowing the grass, sorting and reorganizing cupboards, so I'm taking the luxury of a lazy Monday with my morning tea and catching up on reading the weekend Globe and Mail...they had this wonderful article on the style of the elderly, (which reminds me of how synchronicity is always working in our lives, you're writing about the elderly while I'm reading about them)....anyway, the article reads....that - 'These ladies and gents can teach us a thing or two.....Cohen believes the renewed respect for the elderly style among his age cohort is a result of boredom with youth-oriented culture. Fashionable 20-year olds, he says, are a dime a dozen, while individuals whose style has persevered for half a century truly demands respect."
....wonderful!
