Points to Ponder

Chinese fortune cookies have gotten pretty lightweight in the past few decades it seems, turning into mere random numbers suitable for the lottery and a ways to pretend you can learn how to pronounce a word of Chinese from reading its meaning.

One I found which fell out of this trend of frivolity caused me to ask this question: What would these things be? These "lighter things" and these "deeper joys" forecast by the following slip of paper tucked in a sugar-hardened folded edible treat:

"the lighter things in life and deeper joys will follow"


Today, this is your fortune because you chanced across it here. So it's your time to decide:
what are these things (for you)?
