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

  7. Yum. The basic foods are the most satisfying to me...always. What is better than an egg, a banana, basil, tea, olive oil, a lemon??? Etc, etc.

    Absolutely right MT...when we eat Real Food our bodies know what to do with it, and so it nourishes...body and spirit.

  9. I am so with you on the REAL food! It's what our bodies were meant to eat! Not sure if you want the dogs under your table, but I know a meal with you would be a wonderful experience.
