Here was joy
At night, as sometimes we did, I took a walk with my friend Ruth. She
would call and say “you wanna walk?” I experienced something
special that night. A bright, clear, penetrating moon was out. It was as
if swirling masses of twinkling lights of gold emerged through space and time, a
river of energy and light. They bubbled up and out, a flow of hope, of
enchantment, of playfulness. This is what I recall from some years ago.
For many years I wanted to value the joy out of life, to save it in a
sense. And here was joy, seen in round waves of light during a full clear
moon in full glory.
