Joie De Vivre and Julia Child
We are happy to be with people who radiate the joys of being alive. I would love to meet someone like Sister Mary Patrick, the giddingly exuberant friend of Whoopi Goldberg’s Delores in the wonderfully riotous Sister Act. The French call it joie de vivre – the joy of life. But I think real people can be more colorful. And speaking of French, real people and the joy of life, who else comes to mind but the iconic American TV chef – Julia Child. Bon apetit!
The images of a beautiful life were captured beautifully by James Poniewozik in his January 2005 Time eulogy:
