Ode to joy

“Genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way.”
Charles Bukowski

Can the most mundane source of inspiration offer the most profound insight? I think so.

Today I watched my daughter listening to my friend Monique talk to her and tell her jokes. She threw her head back in pure uncomplicated joy, loving the absurdities and 'getting' them all, losing her inhibition and shyness over meeting for the first time. Letting go and leaving exhilirated with the possibility of ideas and unlocking the flood of her own in the car…all the way home.
