The deepest joy

It’s true that how we spend our days is how we end up spending our lives. We can deliberately choose to spend them wisely.*
(Bernadette Jiwa)

A dream,” he said, “as it goes whiffling through the night is making a tiny little buzzing noise. But this little buzzy-hum is so silvery soft, it is impossible for human bean to be hearing it.”**
(The BFG)

To be filled with joy seems to be the richest place we shall ever find ourselves, so may there be many things that give you joy.

Above all, may there be that deepest of joys that gives you capacity to be who you are and bring what only you can bring for joy in others.
