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

    1. I think one of the gifts of aging Catherine is that we really start looking.

  5. I couldn't agree more! I think it's the realization that we are mortal, and there's an end to our "seeing".

    1. I'd like to think it has a little more to do with the some small degree of enlightenment than you-don't-know-what-you've-got-til-it's-gone T!

  7. Most certainly PP...as Roald Dahl says "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."
