Thirty days of beauty


I came across this picture on the Charter for Compassion Facebook page. It appeared just a day after I had posted a beautiful picture of some giraffes on my own page adding the caption ‘A little beauty goes a long way…’

With all the senseless terror

With all the hateful political rhetoric

With all the ridiculous shaming of those who dare to hold an opinion other than our own

With the terrible violence

I feel a strong draw to intentionally focus on beauty for a little while. I’m going to commit to a challenge to find one thing of beauty every day and to share it.

I’m going to do this every day for the next thirty days. Why don’t you join me?

Simply post something beautiful to your social media account every day. If you aren’t on social media – just share your object of beauty with one other person.

If you want to see what I am finding beautiful you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter.

I’m starting with Jessye Norman singing Liebestod from Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde. (

  1. What a lovely idea! So much beauty in the world and what better time to attend to it than now (perhaps this is an eternal question)? Count me in! (I’ll keep track from ‘Birdville’.)

  2. I’m not familar with the Jessye Norman piece at all, nor even the opera. I’m more familiar with Tannhauser . . . but I commend Innessa Galante’s “Casta Diva” if you’re moved by the operatic. Very beautiful, indeed.

  3. I wasn’t sure if your comment ‘why don’t you join me’ was an invitation to follow your posts or to join you in posting.
    I see that others have and hope to join you… especially as it was a post on cruelty that upset me so much the other day.
    Thanks for initiating
