Pocket of Joy: The view from my porch in the golden hour

“Grief makes you feel like you’re going crazy,” or so says the author of a blog post on the website whatsyourgrief.com. And the added stress of helping care for an elderly parent, mixed with grief over losing one’s spouse, can amplify the craziness. So I need my “pockets of joy,” like this soft-focus view from my front porch during the golden hour of a recent late afternoon.



I love the term “pocket of joy.” I first heard it on a Netflix reality show when one of the main starsspeaking of his difficult growing-up years, also spoke of the pockets of joy that sustained him through those difficult times.
