Make time for Joy

 


This sounds almost frivolous in today’s world, yet reflecting on what brings us joy is the essence of wisdom in perilous times.  – Mark Matousek


During the warm months when the weather is nice and the days are long, it is especially easy to make time for joyful endeavors.  There is so much ugliness and strife that enters our lives daily, let’s not forget to bring some joy into our lives each day.  As Mark Matousek points out, the pursuit of joy is not frivolous but the essence of wisdom.  Indeed, it is necessary for our spirits and our bodies.  It’s a question worth pondering: what brings me joy?  Give it some thought, perhaps while listening to Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A, which never fails to remind me that there is true beauty in this world.  And that brings me joy.
