The word cloud I made came from my book Life Music Lessons Learned at the University of Catastrophe. It's from the essay Joy Benchmarks, which you can read here.
"The darker the road, the more precious light becomes. Since I've walked down a terrible dark road, I can celebrate the tiniest rays of light in my life. I have joy benchmarks that many people don't have, and I treasure them all."
This remains a cornerstone in my life. So much so I wanted to turn it into art.
