I reconnected with my cousin Pam over the weekend at a family reunion. We haven’t seen each other in years (and never did know each other well), but at the party, the thing that instantly drew me to her was her laughter. Pam is not afraid to tell an off-color joke, laugh if you spill your drink all over your pants, or take a bite of food from your paper plate if it looks appealing…all of this is done in the spirit of fun and it is so refreshing to be around.
We became friends on Facebook and she’d posted a version of the above cartoon (which I couldn’t seem to put up here so I found an alternative version)…but when I saw it I laughed until I cried. Jack didn’t get it…which made me laugh even more.
At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities. Jean Houston
