WELCOME

WELCOME to the Take Joy Society. We are a group of ladies who first met because of our love of Tasha Tudor's art and lifestyle. We are broadening our focus to include other artists/writers/people of interest who embody Tasha's philosophy to Take Joy in all the good that life has to offer. Here you will find a record of our get-togethers and resources to help you see that the gloom of the world is but a shadow so that you, too, can Take Joy!

Music

Being creative is one of the ways you can Take Joy!  "Music loosens the grip of our conscious mind during the process of creation," according to Sarah Ban Breathnach.  It also helps to alleviate stress, help you focus your concentration, get you out of a funk, and help you express your emotions.

Great Day - Paul McCartney
When you're wide awake
Say it for goodness sake
It's gonna be a great day
While you're standing there
Get up and grab a chair
It's gonna be a great day

And it won't be long, oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long no no
It won't be long, it won't be long oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long ooh yeah

Ooh, ooh, yeah
Gonna be a great day

And it won't be long, oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long no no
It won't be long, it won't be long oh no
It won't be long, it won't be long oh

When you're wide awake
Say it for goodness sake
It's gonna be a great day
While you're standing there
Get up and grab a chair
It's gonna be a great day


Perfect Day - Miriam Stockley

The rain has moved on
And left a new day
Nothing seems to move, everything is still
it’s just a perfect day

The shadows and light
That move with the wind
Hidden violets grow splashed with summer spray
Just another perfect day

On the wild and misty hillside
Fear is nature’s warning
Hunger here is never far away

And all of this world
Is for children who play
Days that never end, always should remain
Another perfect day
