The ordinary extraordinary

"The only difference between an extraordinary life and an ordinary one is the extraordinary pleasures you find in ordinary things." - Veronique Vienne

Isn't she right?
And wise?

Oh, the thousands of pleasures of everyday life!

"Is not this the true romantic feeling- not to desire to escape life, but to prevent life from escaping you?" ~ Thomas Wolfe

Let's vow to savor the moments, the ordinary, extraordinary little moments.

They are the things of which eternity is built.
