JOY IS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE

03/11/2020

“The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers, which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.”
– Audre Lorde

Joy, and celebrations in particular, focus our attention on our commonalities, not our differences. In a world full of turmoil, remember that joy is an act of resistance!

“We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure, but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world.” – Jack Gilbert

What brings you joy?

One Love, Your Housewife
