Embrace the Ordinary Tea Towel
‘The ordinary has a very bad name. We’ve inherited a Romantic assumption that things that are unique, hard to find, exotic or unfamiliar are naturally fitted to delight us. Yet the paradoxical fact about happiness is how often it collects in some unprestigious places: a quiet evening in, supper with an old friend, doing the washing up with a child… This may be the true meaning of life. Before chasing an ideal future, we should be sure to be fully attuned to, and amply to celebrate, the modest, beautiful, ordinary moments and things that are available to us already.
