Week #5 – … so this is Joy!

It descended upon me, this joy without which the whole world would surely collapse. It was a quiet joy found in the sand beneath my feet, the slowness of my gate, the stretch of arms on a beach, the quiet breath of knowing, a girl at play, a mother with a big-brimmed sun hat and the hope of seashells in our arms.
