Joy isn't something you get in a bottle
or swallow in pill form.
It starts with a whisper "yes" from your heart,
moves to pull the edges of your mouth into a smile
and just dances outward from there.
It's something you find inside and cultivate.
a feeling of lightness and contentment.
You might notice the feeling of awe and delight
in the roar of the waves
or in a child's shy smile.
Because joy is something you create
from your willingness to notice the world around you
and be touched by the smallest things,
you never have to be apart from JOY.
What harvest of joy have you reaped this week?

(If you just can't get it to work, email me

4. visit other players -- as many as possible --
and let their joy infect you.
