Re: J: Judgment, Jokes, and Joy

Ah judgmental. That's what everyone else is right.

Not a joke, a quote from Seinfeld:

Jerry: Why don't you just get lost?
Man: Why don't you get lost?!
Jerry: Because I was standing here, that's why!
Man: Oh yeah?!
Jerry: Yeah!
(The man walks away)
Jerry: I kinda like this opera crowd. I feel tough. Anybody else got a problem?
And joy...

Joy by Carl Sandburg

Let a joy keep you.
Reach out your hands
And take it when it runs by,
As the Apache dancer
Clutches his woman.
I have seen them
Live long and laugh loud,
Sent on singing, singing,
Smashed to the heart
Under the ribs
With a terrible love.
Joy always,
Joy everywhere -
Let joy kill you!
Keep away from the little deaths.
Cool wide-ranging column Lynn. Thank you.


we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
