More thoughts on Joy, inspired by Sandra Dodd

"Try the idea that it might be enjoyable to do work.  To clean, cook, type, compute.  Happiness might last a few seconds, but joy can be ongoing, can be felt before, during, and after our goals. A tiny moment can be enjoyed.  Warm water over your hands when washing. Light and shadow on the floor.  Pictures in the clouds.  You don't need permission from someone else to experience JOY.  Whether or not what you thought gave you joy is up to you.  Your life is yours and is being lived NOW.  Do not wait for approval.  Do not wait for instructions.  Have all this joy you want.  Help your children, family, friends to find this joy too...."
