Well, despair didn't work... I'll try joy.

Least that's what Christy's saying over at Dry Bones Dance. An excerpt:

I think I am just increasingly seeing joy and hope as acts of defiance in a violent world. Life is uncertain. Bad things happen. Joy says, "Well, I'm here today, and if the world spins off its axis tomorrow - and it just might - it won't help matters to suck all the life out of right now." I think I'm beginning to figure out that me being miserable and weighed down by the sorrows of the world just adds one more bit of pain to the already enormous pile. Maybe being reasonably happy would create some sort of cosmic ripple in the universe.

I think a lot of people could use a good reading of this message; I know I needed it.
