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

Here I Am...

Here's my entry for Razmataz's photo challenge this week
SELF PORTRAIT.
Didn't quite know what to do with this one
except deal with it 'head on' (bad pun...groan)







...what a difference a day/season/haircut makes!

  3. Jacqueline, Usually when I see someones picture, it is nothing like what I imagined them to look like. Your's however is completely different. I imagined you just like this. Blonde, healthy and althletic looking and gorgeous.

  6. Well, you are just beautiful! But then I expected you to be, with such a beautiful and loving heart. A terrific smile and eyes that are really looking and "listening" to you.

  8. I agree with you about Chania Molly...I love her wild hair.
    But Olive...I saw beautiful you and your daughter quite clearly.
    I'm glad there were no surprises Raz, I like to think I'm like Popeye...I yam what I yam.
    Thank you E. Charlotte, the girl with the beautiful eye (s). Only saw one, presume the other is the same.
    While challenging Jo, this weeks subject was fun, and has evoked some interesting conversation.
    Z, you words mean a lot...I always used to fixate on people's mouths when looking at them, I'm trying very hard to divert my attention to their eyes.
    Boston Lady...I'd like to think I have more than one interpretation of myself, although I fear the winter (second) photo was a little pale!

  10. You look ever so chic and poised, and just like my mental image of you. In fact, picture no. 1 is the image of my mental image of you. I'm newly proud of my imagining capacities.
