today: joy (again)

“Joy is not in things; it is in us.”
-Richard Wagner

Umm, yeah. The sun is shining. The questions remain. Hope is stirring. Life antagonizes the mundane. It’s not choosing to be happy, this journey. Happiness is so often based in temporal things. But joy, ah, joy roots itself in reality. Joy does not refuse to look pain in the face. Joy exists in the midst of all the conflict and crazy, an inner dance of delight because we the created are loved perfectly.
