moments of joy…

Just this second the sky is a littered with ribbons of red and orange.  There is a backdrop of deep blue caressing the edges of the horizon as if this entire half of the universe is playing catch-me-if-you-can.

It’s absolutely beautiful.  My throat is up between my eyeballs and this is a moment of joy that happens more than you might think.

These little gems are everywhere.

“There has to be a moment when you choose happiness, when you stand up, raise your face towards the sun, and just grab joy and put it in a place where no one can ever take it away from you.”
Kris Radish, The Shortest Distance Between Two Women

“I think sometimes I think too damn much. I worry about this and that and everything else and then I wake up and four more years have slipped right out the back door.”
Kris Radish, Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral

“Not going back is fine.
Not going back but occasionally visiting might be best.
Not going back but remembering so you don’t see the same view twice.
Not going back so you can turn a new page, write a new chapter, develop an entire new list.
Not going back so you can stretch and grow and see yourself in a light that you never knew existed.
Not going back so that you can fly. Fly. ”
Kris Radish, The Sunday List of Dreams
