Welcome!

It seems to me that ‘joy’ is a word that has become unfashionable and, perhaps, lost meaning for the modern age.  My aim is to explore the meaning of joy, the ways in which we can develop a capacity to tap into joy, and the qualities of being that contribute to this capacity.

Why ‘Passage to Joy’?

It seems to me that ‘joy’ is a word that has become unfashionable and, perhaps, lost meaning for the modern age.

Through this site, my aim is to explore the meaning of joy and the ways in which we can develop a capacity to tap into joy. I penned some of the first posts early in 2009 but, caught up in our move to Canada, had to put this project on the back burner. So I have re-dated the early posts to reflect the ‘launch’ of the site.

Blogging provides a public ‘scratch pad’ and, more importantly, the possibility of finding out what other people think. I invite and welcome your contributions.

Over time, I hope to draw together these ideas into a more coherent form, perhaps even a book! So if you do post your thoughts on my site please be aware of this and that it is on the understanding that you are giving me the right to reflect those thoughts in any such project.

I wish you joy!
