"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

A Life Without Laughter, Is No Life At All

It’s the end of another over night shift. I am awake and ready to go to breakfast and laugh. I have surrounded myself with people who can do this - just laugh. Tears in our eyes, gut roaring laughter. I have begun to catalogue the different types of laughter in my life. I spent the evening laughing with coworkers, Sunday breakfast is a table of’s to it all, and some quotes to boot.

I like laughing. I like a good smile and a good joke. I like people who can succumb to silliness at a drop of a note. (Unknown)

Grief can take care of itself, but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with. Mark Twain

Humor is a rubber sword - it allows you to make a point without drawing blood. Mary Hirsch

You can’t deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants. Stephen King

Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh. W.H. Auden

"To have a life" is defined by the value you put on the things you choose to do.

Life would not be worth living without humor in small and large doses. Its saved my spirit, even my marriage at times!
