Last month, Radical Joy for Hard Times founder Trebbe Johnson posted this 23-second video on her Facebook page, writing:
Two days ago I went outside in a terrible mood--angry about the state of the so-called union, frustrated about my work, wondering why I try so hard with what feels sometimes like no results. And I hadn't been out for one whole minute when I was completely captivated by this marvelous little symphony: snow melting from the roof of the garden shed onto an old garbage can lid and a pile of slushy snow. The world offers amazing gifts if I only pay attention.
May you be open today for some tiny burst of beauty, just anonymously carrying on with what it does with its life until you happen to come along and notice it.
