Life’s a joyride.

Sometimes it’s the feeling of flying down a dusty California road, wind in your hair, hair in your eyes, in a ‘78 powder-blue Mercedes that only turns off if you stall the transmission because there’s a problem with the ignition. Other times you’re speeding down a Tennessee highway, fat raindrops coming down so torrentially you can barely see out the windshield.

Life’s always like that, filled with little dichotomies of the same thing: joy. It’s with us in the wonder and in the sorrow. It’s, in my opinion, the key to a good life.

joyride is a free monthly newsletter that explores the intricacies of identity, work, art, and beauty, and how joy is the undercurrent in it all. Essays, articles, guest posts, and interviews explore how, on a personal level, we’re figuring out who we are in relation to all those things.
