What does black joy look like to you?

My Black Joy looks like relaxation. Dats it. All I want to do is spend time with my loved ones, cook meals, enjoy the sun, and live near the water and trees. My joy looks like freedom to exist in peace & never feeling rushed to get things done. I believe in slow & thoughtful movement. The things that capitalism doesn't want me to have access to.
