All I said was, "I want to take a picture of you loving this beautiful beach." That's all I said. And I watched as he ran into the water with all his clothes on and leapt around like a 4 year old. John Scalzi, my fabulous playmate, my funny Weather Muffin and above all, my greatest teacher.
That's when I figured it out. In order to really, truly and unabashedly experience joy, one must embody a pretty high level of confidence and be willing to look silly. Better yet, perhaps those joyful people don't even THINK about looking silly! Maybe they just feel good enough about themselves that they are unwilling to lose an opportunity to be happy because of "what others might think." Man.
We could learn a lot from a Weather Muffin.
