Finding (extra)ordinary in the mundane


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “(Extra)ordinary.”

Mundane and meaningful objects. Beautiful everyday things. This week, surprise us with something or someone (extra)ordinary which was perfect because this is the way I live my life.

Living mindfully has allowed me to witness the world differently than many others. Many ordinary things become (extra)ordinary, especially now that I stop to explore with my camera. As with other weeks, I could not stop at one photo.

Broken Rosette on fence

When I noticed this rosette looking object on the fence I thought it was (extra)ordinary and have several photos from various angles. The center reminded me of a pearl and the grey with pinkish-orange brought this piece to life. What do you think? Do you see what I saw?

When cat sitting for my son, I walked into his back yard and felt like I had entered another world. The beauty in the ordinary was (extra)ordinary. I knew it the moment I witnessed the clover. It was an amazing morning and I got down on the ground so I could be up and close to the clover. The spiders had worked hard on the webs and the rain decorated their work. Then while walking in the woods I noticed this tree and was amazed by what resembled a tunnel and wondered who enjoyed traveling back and forth. Possibly a squirrel or chipmunk, maybe a rabbit. Hope you can see the (extra)ordinary as I saw while taking these photos.

Love and Light!
