Welcome to Finding Something Lovely. Sip a cup of tea and stay awhile. Here you will find a little piece of calm and perhaps, something strangely lovely too.
Beauty lives all around us.
What is lovely to you today?

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
– Robert Louis Stevenson
Finding something lovely is not about finding happiness tomorrow. It is not about the glamour or glitter of extravagance. It is about looking at everyday and finding beauty.
Washing dishes after a long, sultry meal is beautiful. A sweet kiss from a rose cheeked child is beautiful. And art. Creating for art’s sake? That is beautiful too.
This morning, for me, it was an extra hour’s sleep before the telephone rang. An extra hours rest before a particularly busy day IS a beautiful thing.
Today, what have you enjoyed that was beautiful?
