Some people are enviably multi-talented: they write, paint, sing, dance, cook.
I, on the other hand, have but one talent. But it’s a goodie. I write.
I am beyond grateful for this ability. It has been the source of my livelihood for decades. I have written more ads and commercials than one can count. I have won awards. I have gained client kudos. Most importantly, I have paid my bills.
And now, as I approach that age where I am courted by AARP and The Neptune Society, I have graduated to writing just one thing: what I love; what makes me happy. I figure it’s bound to make a few other people happy too.
What better way to enhance a day than with smiles, if not downright laughter?
Though I did not know him personally, a philosopher named Aristotle posited that
“Laughter is a bodily exercise, precious to health.”
That was good enough for me. Sure beats huffing and puffing on a treadmill. And there is another ancient bromide that says, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Perfect. Have you checked the price of your prescriptions lately?
So have a laugh or two. I will keep posting as many smiles as my iMac can tap out.
And remember: Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you quickly run out of Kleenex.
With love & laughter,
