Everything is Extraordinary



“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.” Aaron Rose

Happy New Year everyone. Hope 2009 brings us all lots of good luck and good opportunities.

Sky Watch Friday is dedicated to those who keep watch on their patch of the sky waiting for that magical moment when nature displays all its majesty for us all to enjoy.







Jamie of Starshyne Productions is hosting a blogging group to work through Gail McMeekin's book 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women.

The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women - A Portable Mentor is an inspirational guidebook that offers twelve practices that will increase your creative success and help you to achieve your goals, with interviews of Sarah Ban Breathnach, Barbara Sher, Sigrid Olsen, and other highly creative women and I can't wait to see what everyone gets up to with this project.

What a lovely, lovely photo! I am inordinately fond of lighthouses, and enjoy them even more, I think, because I am land-locked.

Happy New Year to you!

I love photos of lighthouses and the sky you captured with it was beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

Titania said...

Lighthouses are still enigmatic looking out to the sea, their light a ray of hope; perhaps still is. Lovely SWF Mandy, and all my best wishes for a happy 2009.
