Defining joyous freedom

Joyous Freedom: A child on a rooftop, running around in wide circles, face raised in expectation, arms outstretched, with palms welcoming the first drops of rain.

That to me is joy unshackled and letting itself dance. Watching the boy in the neighboring building from my balcony yesterday, for a moment I was jealous. And then I was running with him, reveling in his happiness. Remembering my childhood and hating that I was grown up.
