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.
