So, I’ve been in a good mood all day because I woke up this morning to to this upbeat video of a little girl and her teacher dancing:
So, let’s make today’s post about joy, and the things we do not because we have to, or because we think we can build a career or a reputation out of them but because we enjoy them.
I dance, too. Not particularly well, but I have fun doing it, and I meet people. I have fun.
I write stories for the fun of it. There’s nothing better than sinking into a world of your own creation, and just tinkering. I have a massive amount of material that’s just me playing with my characters. (Editing’s a different story. Editing is the hard-labor end of writing.) I paint.
And since I’m clearly starting to ramble–I’ve been up since 2 glorious A.M.–I’m going to post a picture of one of my paintings (which was on my hard drive, anyway)(and which I got a lot of joy out of making) and get off the computer.
