Where have you gone, joy?

 

Frozen in the moment watching an old man making caramel lollipops.

I was sorting out my folders today and when I found this picture it moved me to tears. I was wondering why. It wasn´t any particular memory associated with this picture, it was the pure joy in that girl´s eyes.

Joy. Something that sounds so simple. The demand is high, but what about the supply?  Seems like we lose our joy as we go further. Anyway, her eyes prove that deep down it is still there – somewhere. Go deep then.

 

Thanks for stopping by!

About terissmile

Teresa is the name. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since I always leave a piece of my heart in every place I had chance to live for a while, I feel more like a child of the world. It all started with moments which had a huge impact on my emotional level and on myself as well. Moments seemingly ordinary and insignificant from the common point of view, more specifically emotions written in human faces. I started chasing those candid ephemeral moments that are there only for a second and then they are gone and lost forever - be it loneliness, fear, anxiety, astonishment, joy, love, disappointment, loss... But it´s all real. Real emotions of real people. I do not follow any rules in particular, the only thing I insist on is honesty and genuineness that help me to add life to possibly every shot I take. Since minimalism is my way, I try to keep them as minimalist as possible. That is how I create my world. Take a look if you like. https://thestoryofmylifebyterismile.wordpress.com/
