“the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying” –

Joy is an outpouring of the meaningfulness of my art.

There is a Japanese concept fo finding purpose in life called “Ikigai” which exists at a crossover of what you are good at, what you love, what the world needs and what you can get paid for (I’m thankful it’s not what you DO get paid for because at the moment that’s not very much! HA!). –

Through experiencing photography as my Ikigai, there is joy, within and coming forth from me.

These recent images illustrate the emotion of JOY for my soul. I hope you feel it too.
