while waiting at a stoplight yesterday, one foot unclipped, patiently watching the cross traffic, a car pulled up next to me.
it was a bright, shiny red VW bug, with those great big black false eyelashes curling and sticking out above its headlights.
there was a vase attached to the dashboard with a flower in it, and the license plate was

how could I not be, after seeing that?

may you find joy today, if not at a stoplight, somewhere else, and may it stick with you for quite some time.
I know I will---whenever I think of that car---remember that joy can be found in big places, in tiny little spots, everywhere, whenever I'm willing to look for it.
