joie de vivre!

I first came across this lovely phrase when I was studying Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. I have come to realise that the joie de vivre must always, always be recaptured. Like an elusive butterfly, it flutters away if you do not consistently keep your eye on it…And sometimes, it can be a choice, just as Sun Yanzi’s song writes: 开始懂了 / 快乐是选择.
