Shades of Joy

With this wonderful line of flowers, Takashi Murakami manages to capture the subtle variations in joy. I imagine each one was produced after some specific event that elevated Murakami's spirits in its own unique way. Among the flowers, I see an adventure, a home cooked meal, and a lover's caress -- I spot laughter, ebullience, and release.

Which shade of joy are you feeling today?
