Simple Joys

Simple Joys
by John Bennett

The last frontier is simple joys.

The last frontier is knowing a simple joy when you see one.

Having a warm feeling toward the dust in the sunlight on your car’s dashboard is a simple joy.

Watching the toast turn brown in the toaster is a simple joy.

Standing on your front porch at night staring up at the sky is a simple joy.

Liking yourself is a simple joy.

Once they take this away, they’ve crushed us.
