There’s an air of despair out there, friends, and the best way to fight it is with our own inner joy. That’s as simple as I can make today’s reading. Be strong in your personal joy, however that might manifest for you, and don’t let other people rain on your parade. Be mindful of where you’re going and where you are, and pay attention to where you put your feet. But as you keep moving on down your path, try to remember that there is joy all around you. Life is a burgeoning mess of a chaotic house party, and you can take part in it if you want to, either by yourself or with your crew.
