A new dawn…


Welcome to Opal Odyssey- Joie de Vivre, my personal space on the web!

Well, if you’re wondering who I am, direct your mouse to my profile-however, forgive me for it being highly incomplete!

Joie de vivre (from the French joie, “joy”; de, “of”; vivre, “to live, living”) is a term used to express a cheerful enjoyment of life. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, “can be a joy of conversation, joy of eating, joy of anything one might do… And joie de vivre may be seen as a joy of everything, a comprehensive joy, a philosophy of life, a Weltanschauung. Robert’s Dictionnaire says joie is sentiment exaltant ressenti par toute la conscience, that is, involves one’s whole being.”

And as Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru ji rightly observed…

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open…”
