Serendipity Sunday: Do You Get What an Amazing World you Live in?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Pictured above is one my favorite roses called Angel Face.  It has lovely heady scent not too strong, just right as you pass by it.  This is the first and it is very pink, instead of light lavender it is supposed to be...we don't mind, I love it just the same. I love that it is one of the many aspects of my amazing world.

 

The title of my post, "do you get what an amazing world you live in?" is from the book, Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir by Ruth Reichl.  I feel in love with Ruth Reichl when she was writing restaurant reviews in the Los Angeles Times, and I believe I have read almost every book she ever wrote. 

 

That sentence was attributed to her friend, Bill Blass, a clothing designer.  He was referring to her life as the editor of Gourmet Magazine, with three chefs talking together in the kitchens of Gourmet .

 

At the end of that anecdote, I loved her conclusion,

"Now for the first time, I thought that maybe he was the one who hadn't gotten it right.  Every world has its extraordinary side.  It's just that so few of us know how to find it".

 

I think that each and everyone of us owe it to ourselves to find our unique personal world.  It is what makes life worthwhile and beautiful regardless of the circumstances or conditions we find ourselves in. 

 

Do you get what a amazing world you live in?  Happy Sunday!

With the world seemingly on hold we are loving again the music of Phillip Glass. It gives us movement and calm at the same time.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I do get it!  Despite the current situation, I was thinking just yesterday that how lucky we are that we have things like Zoom and of course, Amazon, to help us get through this.

I wake up each morning with nothing but amazement that in a world filled with darkness (if you watch the news) a single blossom will bring joy Alexandra....

Thank you and may joy fill both of your hearts Ron and Alexandra Seigel

Hello, Ron and Alexandra Seigel. Thanks for such a positive post. You're absolutely correct we should all try to find a silver lining in the world around us.

Kathy Streib I do agree when it comes to Zoom and Amazon, although I have a feeling that when this is over, we will be sick and tired of both...I already am.  I also feel that this applies to us as individuals, as I think of all the people around me and the joys in my life they are so much more than tech and convenience can offer.  A

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS I have disconnected from the news years and years ago...we just read Reuters which the central news feed to all others.  Unlike the others who understand that fear and darkeness contribute to AD REVENUES, they are most of the time neutral without agendas of points to prove.  Flowers do enhance my life on a daily basis.  I see lots of light!  A

Ron and Alexandra:

Such a beautiful flower!

I remember Ruth Reichl and always enjoyed her reviews, and certainly was a fan of Gormet. Never read one of her books, though.

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel 

Nice post and pretty flower.  Good quote, "Every world has it's extraordinary side. It's just that so few of us know how to find it." Hopefully with what is going on in this world right now we will all take the time to reflect and learn how to find it. Yes, I do know what an amazing world I live in and I am so grateful for it.
