Things that give me joy, in no order, and inexhaustively:

  • The bleeding hearts shady shade plants that were crushed by huge pallet full of deck redoing fake wood last summer and I thought were dead dead dead but which came back this year. Even the one that was puny. Though it’s still puny.
  • Coming across books I’ve already read in the 50 books poc journal (such as Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi) and realizing that while my reading pattern is pretty white, it’s not completely white, and that’s before I start intentionally seeking more diverse reading!
  • Sunshine.
  • My leather jacket (sorry, vegans).
  • The way my daughter plays “Ode to Joy” on the piano.
  • Empanadas.
  • One Password.
  • Yes, you’re alive songs: “Leeds United” by Amanda Palmer, “Karma Slave” by Splashdown, “Walk the Walk” by Poe, “Up to the Roof” by Blue Man Group, “Flowers” by They Might Be Giants.
  • Newfound stability in poses like Utthita Trikonasana.
  • Coloring and drawing with Sophia.
  • Local Taizé services.

What gives you joy?

> finding people to entertain my flights of fancy with regard to role playing games. Unless a baby comes before then, I may get to play some more D&D this weekend.

> A baby being on the way.

> first cup of coffee in the morning

> the pot roast that Krissi made last night

> keeping up with friends from many many miles away

> snapping some photos and ending up with a great one

I second empanadas. And Taize services.
My own list:
>Good friends, even those far away and infrequently met.
>The stars on a clear night…even though they’re not so visible anymore.

Oh! And watching my chickens peck around in the yard.
