10/365 Joy by LouJay

Number 10 in my 365 project
looking for the gifts in the present, each day for a year.

An allen key, a bottle cap from a cider stubby I think, and a tuning fork were kicking around my dressing table and arranged themselves as joy almost a year ago. I keep them there as when I most need to see joy, it’s right there in front of my nose.

They jumped out this evening….a little dark and sadly a little fuzzy. But fuzzy joy might be the best….

Do you know, not everyone reads joy when they look at this. My daughters didn’t see it straight up.

joy, words, objects, tools, message

I like to play. I find joy in small things and moments where the edge between conscious looking and subconscious seeing becomes soft enough for me to be there for a moment.

    All one needs, really! Tools of life. Everyday Joy; small victories memorialized in a most modern way.

  • Oh you have the words mmargot….the words!

    I saw it in the thumbnail, lou! fabulous. I can’t keep up with your pf these days but I just love them all

  • Thank you Nadine! I am on a bit of a me me me thing right now. An interesting wander, and a bit over the top prolific (uploading a tiny fraction of what is bubbling forth.) I’ll settle back to normal one day soon I am sure! x
