Last night I helped create an altar for an Interfaith gathering on the theme of sympathetic joy. I forgot my camera, but someone let me use their cellphone to take a couple of photos.
Then, to everyone's amazement, Paul Simon called her up on stage.
Despite her reluctance, he kept calling her up, then handed her his guitar and invited her to sing. His whole face and body were radiant with sympathetic joy as he watched over her, encouraging her every step of the way. I've just watched the youtube clip and it's had me in tears.
Here's the link for you. I wish you many moments of expansion this week, as you rejoice in the good fortune of others.
