Joy of the Day Gets Meta

Joy of the Day is a tiny personal project that aims at bolstering well-being in a tough year by taking note of one joyful thing per day, 365 days in a row.

Joy of the Day 15/365 is meta, with a quote from poet Jack Gilbert that I like particularly well: 

"We must risk delight. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world."

To that I'll add the song I've been listening to early this morning while reading the excellent The Death of Cancer by Vince DeVita, a book that illustrates stubbornness in the face of a ruthless disease. This song was just right for focusing. Mmmmmm. Berlin DJ + biological science = risking delight for sure.
