Thoughts - September 2, 2016

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.”
― Herman Melville, Moby-Dick; or, The Whale
I recently had one of those evenings with friends where laughter came deep and often. It was healthy laughter, not aimed at anyone's expense or tinged with unkindness.....simply funny stuff. I feared I might snort (or worse). The beauty of such moments for me is the suspension of "age." Aches and worries and self-consciousness are thrown to the wind when one is bent over with laughter. I don't really know the secret of recreating such moments. Perhaps it is simply choosing to be around those souls who bring it forth. But what I do know is those moments in our life are precious gifts, times to savor and remember when laughter seems a life-time ago. - Beth Almond Ford
