Unspeakable joy.

Yesterday, while washing dishes (manually, we don't have a dishwasher), I was suddenly overcome with unspeakable joy. It's that kind of joy that seems to give light within the heart. Oh, so cliche, you say. Well, that's why it's unspeakable, it's very hard to put into words.

I'll just put it this way, even if you don't hate doing a chore as mundane as washing dishes, it still is a chore - repetitive, conducive for spaceout moments. Then you abruptly feel lighter, as if washing dishes is one of the most wonderful things to do in life! But that's not all, I also saw all the great things that happened in my life flash before me.

Now that I'm writing about that unspeakable-joy-moment, I ask myself, am I about to die? Is it a premonition of sorts?

I'm always going through a lot, I try not to dwell on it, even if I feel my soul wavering, because that's how life is: There are joys, there are sorrows. It's just that sometimes, one sorrowful thing can throw a weight that can seep the life out of you. What fools we mortals be, indeed.

My unspeakable joy moment just kicked sorrow's balls, and let me be for the entire day. So to honor that day, I'm posting this old photo that can be totally unrelated to the reader, but very meaningful for me.

My life with you is like living in a fantasy land, there are kind and caring creatures, as well as orcs and trolls.

What's the lesson for today? Kick sorrow's balls!

That's it for now.
