Today’s Reverb 10 prompt asks: Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?
We had just finished settling into this apartment. Darkness had fallen, and I was cooking supper with Xander. The radio was playing and a song came on (I’m 90% sure it was “California Gurls” by Katy Perry). And suddenly I was overwhelmed with wild joy. I grinned. I sang. I danced madly around the kitchen and the living room and laughed with glee when I realized that the blinds were still up and anyone in the building next door could see me boogie-ing like a maniac. It was such a perfect, shining moment.
