C.S. Lewis wrote the book “Surprised by Joy” in 1955. It’s a fascinating story, but it is the feeling of joy that fills this episode of Wind & Rhythm. It isn’t just about the joy of the birth of the baby in Bethlehem so long ago. Joy is a feeling that is so indescribable that artists have been captivated as they strive to embrace it.
