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

Here and now

J.  Sorry about the last post...couldn't help myself.

One last word (from me) about travel, before I take off for the weekend!
David, my new nephew, the bridegoom in our most recent family wedding, likes to say he's "Livin' the Dream'.
Sweet boy...okay his nickname is Pumpkin...really believes he is living his life's dream.  Married to the love of his life, working in a job he believes in, surrounded by family and friends who care for him, he is centered in his life-adventure.

Dave, thanks for pointing this too!  Living with the love of my life, three great kids (two I gave birth to and one my daughter married), surrounded by an incredible extended family including my most amazing sister V., embraced by sincere friends (best of all my Amiches).  All of this taking place in a part of this fabulous world called Niagara on the Lake.

Dreams, adventures...all wonderful things, but bloody hell, give my head a shake,  never loose sight of the here and now.


  1. I just read through the last several posts and I have to are so blessed and have such a wonderful family! Your nieces wedding looked absolutely did she!

    Thank you for the brief but much needed breath of another world...(I'm moving this weekend so this was a nice escape!). xo Jessica

  2. Niagra on the Lake - sounds very nice. You obviously haven't lost sight of the fact that paradise can turn into hell without the love and support of all your nearest and dearest.

  3. Jessica...good luck with the move. Been there, done that...own the battle scars!

  4. Tom...nice of you to drop by...and yes, it's all about the who!


Go on...make my day...
