"The human race has only one really effective weapon, and that is laughter. The moment it arises, all your irritations and resentments slip away and the sunny spirit takes their place." - Mark Twain
Happy Hanukah, Winter Solstice, Christmas Eve New Moon, Christmas and welcoming in the long-awaited 2012 year of transformation.
Good Cheer, Love and Light!!!
May we all see the light.... yes, including the trolls!
P.S. By the way, there is in my mind NO CONTRADICTION whatsoever between taking our grave problems seriously AND keeping a healthy sense of humor...
Many of you have read or at least heard of Dr. Viktor Frankl's best-selling book, "Man's Search For Meaning", about his years in the concentration camp at Auschwitz. What were the TWO things that kept him alive through this unspeakable ordeal? The first one : having A REASON TO LIVE, which gave him the will to survive againt all odds. And can you guess number two? That's right, folks: KEEPING A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR. You mean they cracked jokes in Auschwitz? YOU BET - and according to Frankl, that's what kept him alive.
LIFE - LOVE - LAUGHTER
