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

V. Just picked up 'The Mistress of Nothing' by Kate Pullinger.
This is our bookclub's choice for April.
Winner of the Governor General's Literary Award.
Anthony Sattin writes - 'The Mistress of Nothing serves up spicy passion and romance and biting social comment in one delicious dish. Kate Pullinger's fascinating novel brings
1860s Cairo and Luxor to life, not as an Orientalist fantasy, but as they might actually
have been'
Would I pick this book? Probably not. But that is the beauty of book clubs...they can bring you pleasant surprises!
We shall see!
