grasping for joy

The dark days we are in have me grasping for joy.  No, I am not talking about the few minutes of sunshine we are losing each day in the northern hemisphere.  I am talking about the election this past Tuesday and all the overt bigotry, hatred, and regressiveness that will come with it.

My Facebook feed shares plenty of examples of how this election is going to have (is having) very negative consequences.  Snazzy Images — which had been on a few days break for mourning — is about seeing beauty, peace, and fun in the world.  I need a little fun right now.

So here is one of my favorite photos.  It makes a smile come to my face even when I am sad.

Meant to be a bit of braggadocio for my rockin’ Ear-Pinning Pose, Franco jumps in to steal the show.

I often say that pets are the best “people” in the world.  They exude joy, hopefulness, and love.
