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

A day in Pink

Beauty -
does not linger, it only visits. Yet beauty's visitation affects
us and invites us into its rhythm, it calls us to feel, think and act
beautifully in the world; to create and live a life that awakens
the Beautiful.

Beauty evokes elegance and dignity . . .

We respond with joy to call of beauty because in an instant it can
awaken under the layers of the heart a forgotten brightness.

How one walks through the world, the endless small adjustments
of balance, is affected by the shifting weights of beautiful things.
Elaine Scarry

Beauty induces atmosphere and spirit; wonder, delicious turbulence,
love, longing and a trembling delight.

One of the greatest treasures in the world is a
contented heart.

Colour is the language of light;
it adorns the earth with beauty.

Through colour light brings its passion,
kindness and imagination to all things...
