‘Joy’ is an emotion. It is transient. It is bright. It goes deep. It is a whole of body sensation felt when all is completely right with the world.
I think. I worry.
I try and play the chess game of life in my head before the first move of the first piece.
I act according to an unknown future before the present has been fully revealed.
I strain towards …
… and it strikes me that this is not a way of living that nourishes my self …
I want joy in life. I want stillness. I want the perfectly imperfect. I want beauty.
I want richness and juiciness and more cappuccinos with extra froth.
I want the simple things.
… so this writing is a way to check in with my self … see how I’m tracking and share findings of the experiment.
