The start of a new blog (Oct 2,15). Images from around our home. No rules, just a place to share the grand and glorious, the small and beautiful, the serious and silly. A place to share the ordinary day to day world around us.

This poem that says it all for me.

Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself -William Martin, The Parent's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Advice for Modern Parents
