My wife asked me to pen something for her guest series, Prescribing Joy; she wanted me to write an essay, thoughts, or a poem based around those so-called guilty pleasures that bring us joy and in which we find deep wells of happiness.
It took me a while.
I finally found some words to cobble together approaching thought. Sadly, I found them at 2am on a Friday morning. I emailed them to her, fell asleep, suffered through the next day by mainlining coffee and napping while wrapping myself around my 2 year old son while he watched YouTube videos.
My wife posted it on Friday, 5am, as is her custom; she prefaced it with sweet, honest words and not much other preamble. She thought they were good enough to share, so I’ll do the same.
Roll over to Prescribing Joy: Wild Is The Wind (2) for a read. Tell me what you think, there, here. Then click through the series. You should. It’s a good prescription for finding joy.
