More Little Moments of Joy
Published on under the Moments of Joy (Series) category.
Of late, I have been writing about little moments of joy on a relatively frequent cadence. Little moments of joy are the small things -- referred to as the "tiny perfect things" in the movie "Last night, I watched the movie "The Map of Tiny Perfect Things", which you should definitely watch if you haven't seen it -- that happen in a day. The unexpected funny, joyful, or intruiguing events that happen. I have written about hearing birds chirp through my noise-cancelling AirPods. Ever since I often take my headphones out in the same spot because I want to hear the birds sing.
This weekend, I was on a train. On one of the first stops on the line, there is a games field visible from the train window. I cannot presently recall any instances where I have seen the field in use before Sunday where there was a football game going on. As the train conductor opened the doors to let people off the train, my eyes were fixed on this game of football. I felt a sense of joy being able to watch a tiny part of the game. My mind wandered, pondering what people who are playing the game must be feeling. Excitement? Exhaustion, if the game had been going on for a while? Hope?
I kept staring back at the conductor to see for how long the train doors would stay open before we would move on. I wish I had seen more of the game from my view point. I could see all the action. Within around a minute, the train doors were locked again and we moved on.
Later that day, I saw a church that I have seen a few times. That day, however, I was mesmerized by the new angle from which I was viewing the church. The building is awe-inspiring; eye-catching, indeed. Another one of those moments where I thought to myself "wow." I can see the building in my mind now. How was it built? Why do some churches have tall spires on them?
I am committed to writing down these moments of joy as they happen. What small, interesting details of your day have you noticed today?
