More Art and Joy!

The amazing Mae Callen singlehandedly transformed Ottawa last week with her red balloons. Her goal: to bring a little joy into the hearts of weather-beaten, oppressed, depressed, despondent Ottawans.
There is a lot of suffering out there. January lasted forever. Mercury is in retrograde. People are breaking up everywhere you look. And then there's the economy. People are dying. People are sick. People are sad.
So, Irregulars, I'm calling an Emergency Meeting to discuss initiatives to promote joy -- in the spirit of Mae Callen's groundbreaking balloon project.

Excellent idea Aggie!! I definitely think joy is undervalued in todays world/economy, and joy kinda disobeys thermodynamics - the more joy you spread, the more it creates!!

Kevin, thanks, you did link to us. You didn't link to yourself though.

Aggie, great idea and I already have some ideas.

So Aggie, is there a time and place for this Emergency Meeting or are we supposed to dial in telepathically like one harmonious tuning fork of joy? As fun as that option sounds I doubt there would be beer involved, which disappoints me.

OK. I will see what I can do to make the Emergency Meeting happen.
