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

  11. And there you are Jeanne in south-east Asia where you can wear as much sparkle as you choose because the natives will think you, as a farang (that's what the Thais called us foreigners, not sure what the Vietnamese word is) are exotic and strange anyway. Go for it I say!
    Hope you are beginning to settle in.
