It’s not every Monday that a lamb goes to school but that’s what happened today. My daughter took Lamborghini in for a couple of hours and exposed her to a bit of informal education. Here she is on her return. Does she look any smarter?
My day was otherwise gray. Gray skies matching my average mood. But sometimes all we need to do is look around to find something that makes us smile. And that’s exactly what happened when I went down the street today.
Then I looked across the road to something that’s been there for a long time, three years in fact. A yarn bombing design of a steam locomotive and carriages on the wire fence that’s in front of our railway station. Some pretty impressive street yarn art.
This is like the biggest doily I’ve ever seen. It took sixty women over four months to create several metres of this train yarn, a street art community project that was made to celebrate 100 years of trains to this little patch of mine.
It adds a unique spark and creativity to our main street and it’s something that I drive by everyday, yet I’ve never stopped to photograph it.
As we start a new week let’s look around and find the extraordinary in the ordinary and enjoy those moments of life that might seem mundane but in fact can be marvelous.
This is in response to Jithin’s Mundane Monday Challenge #69 – a challenge created to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things and frame it beautifully.
As I settle in for a wild and windy night in Melbourne let’s always try and find the silver lining in those gray clouds.
