The Cosmic Joke


“All that we know is nothing, we are merely crammed wastepaper baskets, unless we are in touch with that which laughs at all our knowing.” – D H Lawrence

I am learning to write humor, a very new thing for me, and I’m loving it. The pleasure is due at least in part to stepping beyond the way I have always defined myself, and it requires an acceptance of failure to progress at all. What’s amazing is that I really can do it, can find the voice of another, and embrace the difference. Must be a little of what actors feel, though I don’t really know. Nice for a change to get outside the little wrapper of my skull and see through other eyes.

Here’s to finding the bigger perspective and accepting the freedom in laughter.
