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

  2. As a member of the 'older generation' - a 70 year old - I know they are right 'cos I've lived the 'life with less' and survived through the era of materialism. For Rhonda and I, "simple" and "minimal" are key words.

    We eat well but in moderation.

    We embrace technology in moderation.

    Our home is a 114 year old weatherboard that has survived several 'existences'.

    Getting through each single day is a legitimate target.

  3. Many of us live life in moderation. The best things in life are not things.

    1. Hubby and I had a fabulous conversation on the drive home on Friday evening...it's wonderful to know we both feel the same way.

  6. Sounds like some conversations we had in our group, when we were busy as "Occupy Saskatoon."

    My wife and I have always been fans of the word, the idea, "enough." I suppose that's another way of saying "moderation." That makes life much simpler. The last new car we bought was about 30 years ago. We've done very well on "new to us" cars since then. Sold our home, living in a much smaller apartment, but we have enough space here. Etc. Etc.

  7. When one spends all one's time managing 'stuff' - it's time for the 'stuff' to go! Rudy and I just made a huge run to the Goodwill - they are always so grateful for donations. I love this phase of our life - this paring down to all that really matters.

  8. Great video. I think was are moving into a new era of minimalism and less is more mentality as a result of the global recession. I guess out of every negative comes something positive ;-)
