Joy enough.

“The mere sense of living is joy enough.” – Emily Dickinson

Why is the most difficult thing

letting go…

opening our hand

Allowing life to come


Sweet Dickinson and her folded notes

Tucked in corners. Hidden words. Found and treasured after death.

But during life what was she?

A recluse. An eccentric. A strange, educated, imaginative lady.

Watching funerals out her back window.

Wearing white.

Loving the moment… “the mere sense of living…”

It really is Joy enough.

It does not, should not, take only a poet’s heart to know…

Life is good.

Joy is in the moment.

It’s waiting to be discovered every single day.

Balance your Joy.
