Learn to write about the ordinary. Give homage to old coffee cups, sparrows, city buses, thin ham sandwiches. Make a list of everything ordinary you can think of. Keep adding to it. Promise yourself, before you leave the earth, to mention everything on your list at least once in a poem, short story, newspaper article.Or a blog.~ Natalie Goldberg
Tonight, I am grateful for everything ordinary. I am grateful for the cat on my lap, the movies on the shelf, the mail in the box. I am grateful for the gas station that sells pizza and chicken tenders because there is no fast food in my small town. I am grateful for the sexy heels in the closet and the hiking boots beside them. I am grateful for the watch on my wrist and the pens in the cup. The chili in the bowl. The simple, ordinary life. I celebrate everything that is ordinary.
I took these photographs of ordinary moments.
