Laughter and LOVE!

At the height of laughter,

the universe is flung

into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities. 

~Jean Houston

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine,

which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis. 

~Jack Handey, "Deep Thoughts," Saturday Night Live

What monstrous absurdities and paradoxes

have resisted whole batteries of serious arguments,

and then crumbled swiftly into dust

before the ringing death-knell of a laugh!

If people only took the time to laugh, maybe the world would be in a better place. At least I know in my house it is :) Great pictures and cute joke!

I love laughing. Especially the really hard laughs where you actually cry. And then you are thinking, "Am I laughing or crying". Those are the best moments.

Christine said...

Terrific post! And so true! Laughter can be the answer, the relief, the pleasure, the joy of life and all it takes is to look for it instead of the gloom and doom we see so much of! Love your photos -- they always bring a smile and a laugh of pleasure! Thanks for them and the quotes! Great way to start the day!

Enjoy and, yes, LAUGH! L day or not!

I love to laugh! Sometimes I laugh when I really feel like crying and then I forget what I wanted to cry about!

Great post Rebekah and, as usual, terrific pics!

As always, lovely pictures! And I love the Jack Handy quote. I used to love that skit...

blueviolet said...

I can't imagine a day without laughter. Ever.

Jennifer Bowen said...

I think I've laughed too much today, thanks to my son. =) I, too, like Jack Handey. His "thoughts" are always hilarious when said out loud. I love the last photo. Kaish and the little girl with similar smiles... adorable!

Tumblewords: said...

Ah, laughter. Indeed, the best thing! Lovely post...

Liz said...

Great pictures! I have a similar see saw picture with my 34 year old husband and his 33 year old friend. Boys! I don't think they ever grow up!

Roger Owen Green said...

I recently came across the Borge line -it is right on. Laughter IS the best medicine. They've even done studies proving that the state of mind is so very important, e.g., when having surgery.

Katie said...

lauging is a cure all! Kaish is looking older these days.

truth said...

LOL, ok the joke was funny. I'll bet that smiling boy brings plenty of laughter and fun to your life. He looks so full of life.

I haven't been laughing enough lately, just been in a major funk BUT I did find myself laughing today in church (it was a good thing) and then at home. So things are looking up.
