Extraordinary Ordinary

What makes an extraordinary life? Sometimes we think that the extraordinary can only come from high profile positions, such as those in acting, politics, fashion, and the like. As witnessed by the interest in memoirs over the past several years, the extraordinary can also come from a keen eye to the miraculous in an ordinary person's life. The man who finds meaning in his brother's accidental shooting death during a hunting trip, the woman who finds the history of her immigrant grandparents, the teenager who struggles to navigate the complex social landscape of high school. Finding insights about the human condition may be a matter of perspective.

What extraordinary light can be found in your ordinary life?
