Bridge of joy

November 17, 2011

The sharing of joy, whether physical, emotional, psychic, or intellectual, forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference.

– Audre Lorde (1934-1992), Caribbean-American author and activist
