What the Joy is all about.

The Joy Menu is the story of a creative life.

Or creative lives: mine and my father’s.

In each installment, I ask: how do we inherit the urge to make art? and does it matter if we actually make any? and what happens when we fail, when we lose out, when we don’t live up to our best and boldest dreams?

It’s hard-wrung from the sponge of my mind.

I hope it makes you cry.
