Odd, is it not? Yes, this is what Joy looks to me like. It always has. My father looked somber like this. This is my view of Jesus, King, Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Confucius, and yes, Buddha. The most enviable Souls there have ever been, no?  Yes, to me. Since my earliest memory.  Enviable!  Admirable yes, but enviable!  No? Joy is quite the opposite of what we worship in this Society, pleasure, happiness, Glee..... I've tried those. They are like eating sand to me. Joy is being alive, and nothing else is. I highly recommend it. With all of my life.
LOL. If you do not resonate at some significant level with this, and this is not a challenge I'm giving you, it is a loving observation, if you do not resonate with this, then do not walk, run, from any closeness to my work. Because my every fiber of being is trying to drag people in this direction of joy.
