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

New Year Philosophy...

If I could sum up how I feel
about dipping my toe into the
New Year...






this is what I would say:





Come to the edge.

We might fall.

Come to the edge.

It’s too high!

COME TO THE EDGE!

And they came,

and he pushed,

and they flew.

Christopher Logue




I love this poem.

  3. LOL Chania...can only imagine the furor in sleepy NOTL if I turned up in that outfit! (just remembered, I don't have that outfit!!) Funnily enough though, Rudy and I were talking about the Polar Bear Dip here...he's so laid up with a cold right now, don't think that's going to happen.

    John...You should talk Mr. One Testicle!

    It's a beautiful, inspiring poem, isn't it Joe...I just love it!
