Joy. Joy. Joy. I’m determined to find joy. Be joyous. Share joy. I’m determined to cast aside the fogginest and dark clouds that try to sweep down and cage us in. I can’t wait weeks or months. The pursuit of joy cannot be put on hold.
Today’s joyfull bit is a series of colorful desserts. Despite my lifelong love of sweets (except for chocolate, cakes, licorice, and marzipan) this past year I opted for my savory foods. My cravings for salt, garlic, creole, curries and pizza left me for little room for desserts. For christmas, I ordered tarts and pies and didn’t take a single bite. The horror! The old me (well literally the younger me) would have ordered dessert first, especially if bread pudding was on the menu.
Now, it’s a new dawn. A new year. And, I’m feeling sugar. I’m feeling colorful foods. They embody happiness and joy.
The year of joy. It must be had. It must be pursued. Especially during the Monday blahs. Go be merry.

I have a hard time wrapping my head around not enjoying chocolate cake, but I’m definitely all for joy! Happy 2022!
Haha. Yeah. Never was into chocolate. Happy new year to you and yours
Oh so delicious looking 😀
Finding The Joy Button
The Joy Stick of Gaming
Early Racing Around A Track

Even Addictive For Some True
Yet the Warmth of Human Connection
Missing Having No Idea There Was A
Name for the Loving Moving Connecting
Co-Creating Neurohormone Oxytocin
to the Party
From Birth On
Of Smiles That
Refuse Neglect or Abuse..:)
Amen. Be merry.
Those do look good! Please don’t seek joy too aggressively though, for that is the source of suffering. Happiness is the letting go of the search for happiness 😉
Wishing you all the best (and lots of joy) for 2022.
Yum! I don’t much care for chocolate either (it doesn’t like me) – salty is my JOY!
