Gratuitous Niece Picspam

Thank you, my friends, for all of your kind and sympathetic words. They've meant a great deal to me over these recent days.

FYI, my most recent "Looking Back on Genre History" segment is up on Episode 410 of StarShipSofa. It's the first of a two-part look into the science fictional and historical inspirations behind the Jedi of Star Wars. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

And now, a moment of joy, courtesy of my niece. Kaitlyn's favorite thing to do this season is dive into a pile of dry leaves.

If only we could all access our joy that easily! I think we all need to roll around in some leaves. ;)

hardly gratuitous! I agree with Estellye.....noticeably, my joy has decreased when I stopped rolling(diving, leaping) into the leaves of life....

makes ya think......

That's why I love to observe young children. They know how to live in the moment and take joy in the simple things!

I make it a point to at least walk in the crunchy leaves every time I go out. People may think it's silly, but it helps keep me connected to that simple, pure joy that kids have. Who doesn't need a bit more joy in their life?

And who says joy is just for kids?

Oh my! RIP Virginia. I know I haven't been on LJ in a *very* long time, but I hope you know that I am very sad to hear of her passing. She was one of my favourite parts about reading your journal. *hugs*

That latest Sofa segment was excellent! Just listened this morning, & can't wait for more Jedi esoterica next month.
