About Claire’s Call to Joy
Learn about what it’s like waving for joy in Columbia, MD. Check out blog posts from each week, including this post from my first day on the Little Patuxent corner in December 2019.
The first part of the journey was three months on the corner waving with a balloon.
The next stage has meant diving into a pandemic, seeking joy wherever it would surface.
The journey continues with a new year. How can we emerge into the next seasons, healing together and returning to common spaces with expanded hearts?
See My Foolish Year for more on the Balloon Pastor origin story.
