Michelle talks about joy
Joy is ever so sweet after its absence. One of the hardest parts of living through a depression is the growing awareness that one’s joy is slipping away. The senses lose their receptivity and pleasures dim: food loses its taste, music sounds flat. But when the senses reawaken, it is such a gift. I think about jazz musicians who describe the intense, sustained ecstasy of playing as pure joy. This is what I feel when I am with horses. I love losing myself in the pure physical connection with these gentle giants – brushing them, cleaning them, feeling their softness and drinking in their scent. Joy is about being present, about the exhilaration of this very moment.
