Joy.

“Joy’s smile is closer to tears than to laughter.” –Victor Hugo

Thoughtful comment…..makes me think about that.  It’s all so temporary.  Life is so fragile in many ways.  Maybe that’s what the Buddhist’s  dukkha doctrine (one of the Four Noble Truths), is about.  Life is dukkha and that covers the wonderful, miraculous, amazing, troubling, painful, heartbreaking, glorious parts of it all.
