  1. Ah, I think we all do hope that we spark joy in others! This brings us joy in return. Smiles.

  3. It is my definite opinion that YES, you DO spark joy. I wonder about all the treasures that are embedded in nests, fun to imagine.

  5. It's as coin toss, either way, LOL. I really like this piece! Especially the coin in an unexpected nest. A magpie might enjoy coming home to that!

  6. I think there is a spark of joy there... and maybe they are sometimes kept a while as treasures in the nest.

  13. Maybe you can be both..a coin in a birds nest would be a wonderful treasure ..and we all have needs...

  14. I wonder whom this voice is asking? I hope it's a rhetorical question--I'll read it that way to empower it.

  15. Some questions cannot be answered by oneself, but must be put to others. This little piece sparked a quick flash of joy.
