The Right To Laugh, ME News, Vol. 2, Issue 32
I joke about my downfalls a lot, but I do take them seriously too.
Knowing your own quirks is a GOOD thing.
Having a strong inner compass is a GOD thing.
It’s very hard sometimes to not let tangled, disappointed roots sprout into full grown mangled bushes.
It’s that much harder to cut them down in maturity, even knowing that the far stretching, familiarly comforting arms of shading leaves will only produce more bitter fruit.
The best way to dismantle a thicket of thorns is to grasp them firmly, wearing steel mesh gloves of humor.
Losing someone you love does not mean you lose the right to laugh. Some of you who have been on this journey with me for the past few years, understand where this is leading. I hope the memories and humorous revelations have helped you to realize how important it is to hold on to the good stuff; to look for the moments that may only be memories in your future.
I hope I’ve helped you handle the loss, as well.
Because as you've come to know, I’m all for the gravitational pull of laughter, strong inner compasses, and the chance to stand on soap boxes.
In this issue: Federal Law, Finding Your Inner Compass, Soap Boxing, and chainmaille.
