A writing prompt from Danielle Laporte: The sound of joy

20140122-163209.jpg Alisha's interpretation of the sound of joy: The sound of joy is a pearl of laughter from a small child.  My dog barking in pleasure at something absurd.  The sound of joy is a sigh of ecstasy or the sound of Om after a yoga class.  The sound of joy is the stillness of the forest as well as it's overwhelming noise.  The sound of joy are the birds outside my window chirping in the early morning while I write morning pages and drink coffee.  The sound of joy is my strong steady breath during a personal yoga class or seated meditation.  The sound of joy is a sweaty yoga class with everyone breathing in unison.  The sound of joy is the Ave Maria at a catholic mass after communion.  The sound of joy is my best friend's voice durning a morning walk or tumbleweed's whispers.  The sound of joy is the wind blowing past your ears on bike ride.  The sound of joy is the thump of your heart beat on a run.  The sound of joy is a still summer afternoon that is so hot and muggy you can only hear stillness.  The sound of joy is champagne bottles popping.  The sound of joy is my grandmother's laugh.  The sound of joy is all around me.
