Salvoes of good wishes
Adagio

To be happily surprised

Joyful
A joyful tree with bright red berries in the midst of a bleak landscape; with good wishes for 2009 and a year of happy surprises / Philadelphia, PA / Dec. 2008

“To be joyful in the universe is a brave and reckless act. The courage for joy springs not from the certainty of human experience, but the surprise. Our astonishment at being loved, our bold willingness to love in return — these wonders promise the possibility of joyfulness, no matter how often and how harshly love seems to be lost.
Therefore, despite the world's sorrows, we give thanks for our loves, for our joys and for the continued courage to be happily surprised.”

~ Molly Fumia
