Turning Ordinary into Extraordinary

You usually have to wait for that which is worth waiting for ~ Craig Bruce

Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it ~Søren Kierkegaard

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is infinite. ~ William Blake

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you ~ Chuck Klosterman

    Your presence makes me smile Rupali. I have a friend with a similar name. Guess what is common between both of you?

    Both of you make me laugh and smile. Thank you for such inspiring quotes. 🤗❤

  2. beautiful beautiful photographs Rupali. Love each one of them.
    I had posted this poem in 2018 for the National Poetry Month, and it is included in my book, Gulistan: A Home of Flowers. I think you might like reading the Extraordinary from the ordinary.

    Extraordinary.

    Ordinary grains of sand
    churning in the lap of the mighty ocean
    playing age old game of hide and seek!
    One such grain, black and unnoticed
    hides in a cocoon of softness,
    enjoying seclusion!

    The shell cries at this invasion
    its privacy violated
    with closed mouth, it shrouds
    the foreign feeling with tears
    and tries to reject its presence, unsuccessfully!

    Years and decades later, this same shell
    opens its mouth
    and the eye of the beholder
    gasps—-

    The lustrous pearl
    lying within the shell
    reminds of the ordinary
    becoming extraordinary! ©
