Laughter, The Great Medicine

When you laugh, you feel alive with joy.  Add more to your life.
When you laugh, you feel alive with joy. Add more to your life.

I intend to laugh more. Be more playful. To never to be too busy to play. To be more awake to seeing more ways to take laughter as a medicine.

This is a challenge for those of us who are Scandinavian. I visited Sweden and was told by a Swedish newspaper publisher, “We like to laugh. But, we do it inside ourselves. I have to hire humor writers from other countries.”

I am finding that I’m laughing at the antics of the genetics professor in the Australian novel of The Rosie Project. His charming exploits unfold in a WIFE PROJECT. He is looking for the perfect one who fits his rigid specs, because that’s how he lives his life: scheduling the same meal on the same day of the week, looking at life the one no one else sees it, while at the same time is a brilliant guy trying to learn how to have sex with a skeleton (the same one he used to teach himself dance steps).

Rosie doesn’t fit his criteria but through her he learns to see life differently.

By the way, don’t you just love spending time with people who bring out the “kid” in you?
Simsion, the author of Rosie, has created a great companion with for you to expand your laughter. The best of all is Nelson DeMille in his novel, Plum Creek.

There at the base of a mountain, I live in a rustic cabin with my engineer/writer husband and loving cat, Alfie. I am a former journalist and pr consultant. In my blog I attempt to capture a sliver of WW history, the Lebensborn program to create a Master Race, and to add newsworthy tidbits which are 'somewhat' relevant to this subject.
