I have been chanting to myself over the last couple weeks. I even wrote it down on a piece of paper to tape where I usually sit at work:
"I choose joy."
And as it seems to happen, when something is on the mind, it appears in other places.
This morning it was on Myth and Moor, a quote from Joanna Macy, "Even a wounded world gives us moments of wonder and joy. I choose joy over despair."
I found this photo while looking for another one:
My brothers and one of my cousins. Northern California, mid 1980's.
I think this is one of favorite days ever.
I choose joy.
I shared this a couple other places but am going to post it here too...
a favorite song that I recently rediscovered:
The photo I was looking for:
My first quilt, early 1990's.
It was a gift for a friend's baby girl.
Flannel with a purchased binding,
a lot of babies like that silky stuff.
Maybe this is a digital prayer flag (I've experimented with this idea before),
one for joy.
