Workshop Wednesday - The Overlooked

My tagline is "finding the extraordinary in the ordinary." Anyone can notice the spectacular. The glittering, flamboyant, in-your-face, boisterously beautiful. The extremes. The perfect clich├ęs. Those things were crafted for love. The over-the-top uber badboy; the billionaire; the supermodel; the award-winning neurosurgeon. The extremes. Each a sun orbited by a solar system of overlooked ordinaries. For me, those suns hold no fascination. They're too easy and too plastic. For me, it's about the overlooked ones, finding their beauty beneath the tarnish.

Just a quick thought for today's Workshop Wednesday.

  1. From your farm, to your horses, to your dogs, you have always looked beyond the surface to find the beauty deep inside. That makes you such a special person! Other people would have bypassed them for something flawless. So many people in this world only see skin deep. Recognize the beauty that you are as well, inside and out, and never let anyone try to convince you of anything different.

  2. It is soooooo beautiful to see and hear how deeply you see things!!! I don't believe many people see what they are looking at. You do and that is one of the things that makes you such an excellent writer!!!
