Welcome!

Finding a bit of peace, of quiet, even joy…

Uncovering moments of ahh!

That’s what this website is all about. It is a place where favorite photos, paintings, words of poets, authors and everyday people help us to see the world around us in new light, with fresh eyes and open minds.

The hope is that each visual image and verbal expression will serve as a contemplative stopping point, help us to see sunlight in the ordinary and to find charm and magic in the commonplace.

Each posting is, quite simply, an invitation, a call to sit back, to look beyond the surface and fully enjoy!
