Jubilant

Rejoice! It’s the end of the week, and time for a celebratory photo challenge.

Jubilant, adjective: showing great joy, satisfaction, or triumph; rejoicing; exultant. See also:

krewe-joy

The Krewe du Vieux is one of the first parades on New Orleans’ Mardi Gras calendar each year and the only one to still use mule-drawn floats (rather than floats pulled by trucks), which allows it to wend through the narrow streets of the city’s French Quarter.

It typically has a satirical political theme, and its floats and costumes are quite risqué — but before the raucous, not-safe-for-work displays, there was a lone singer leading the way. I couldn’t look away; up and down the street, all eyes followed her. Not because of the colors or feathers or glitter, but because of the expression on her face as she sang: exuberant. Joyful. Elated. Jubilant. She was happy to be in that moment, singing that song, and it didn’t matter if there were 1,000 people watching or no one.

The photo gives me a sense of that joy, even while I know that it captures only a fraction of her emotion.

Let’s all end this week on a high note, with images that say jubilant.

      1. OW! I accidentally sent too soon. Suggestion for photo challenge. There are hundreds of international bloggers. How about “this is my country”. Post pictures of your country.
