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

"such an interesting activity, rich with purpose, brimming with ritual and significance.   Jamie Oliver, believing that a large part of the civilized world no longer knows how to cook or even why they should, is leading what he calls a Food Revolution.  Trying to rekindle in the masses what the few who still have a love affair with food cling to;  that basic, powerful instinct - to Nourish.  Not just to feed, but to truly nourish, body, soul, family, relationships.  I admire him.
Sometimes when I dream, a recurring scenario plays out wherein I forget to feed something helpless, be it a baby or an animal and the panic that pervades my night is palpable.
Right now the Art of Cooking is seeping it's way into the most intimate part of life...replacing something stolen. Such a beautiful usurper.  Thank you for stepping in where my broken heart sits, holding me gently like a sweet friend, hand cupped under chin and kissing sweetly upon my cheek saying "don't worry, all will be well very, very soon".
There is so much more to the simple act of cooking than meets the eye."JP
