Today I read this quote by Isaac Bashevis Singer:
“The real truth is this: The whole world is joy. Heaven is a festival all year long. Of all lies, the greatest falsehood is melancholy.”
I think about the ordinary walk through my neighborhood where I began taking pictures of acorns in 2010 to marvel at them. I think of the day I stood outside to catch falling leaves. Ever since those days, I’ve found the joy and the festival that God invites us to consider each day. Today, it’s the way the blue sky appeared against the orange and red leaves.
