Are two thousand and thirteen joys enough for a year? I hope so. Doing the math, we get over 5.5 joys per day and that's not bad at all. I'd sign up any time. Also now I think that the calculi of joy may seem foolish or maybe whimsical and a bit surrealist. Like a rabbit carrying a watch or a hat that looks like a shoe. It could be the title of a curious short story.
Ok, this is really the reason for my entry today. Some of you may be following Alisa Golden's blog: Making Handmade Books. It's one of those sites that give me joy and where we can Explore the Crossroads of Art, Craft, Reading, and Creative Writing as stated in the blog header.
Only yesterday Alisa announced a new project, Star 82 Review, and is calling out to artists and writers to submit their works to this quarterly publication. There are several categories to submit to. I think it's a beautiful and interesting project, as her works always are, and I wanted to share the idea with you.
Maybe you'll find a source of quarterly joy there!
