Joy line. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Joy line.

Dear Self,

I’m going to set up a joy line.

A joy line is my idea for how to deal with myself when I get the sads and need some friending.

What I tend to do is pick one friend and reach out and see if they want to do something.

But they tend to be busy and maybe can’t respond straight away.

And I feel sad while I wait (which is silly, but true).

The joy line will involve a handful of people on a group text that I send the word ‘joy’ to and they can respond with any form of joy they like.

A phone call, a text, a photo, a link to something, a spontaneous catch up…

I’ll let you know how it goes.
