Currie's Gratitude 8 July 2014

My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept love in return.   [Maya Angelou]

My great hope is to laugh way more than I cry. To DO something each day that makes a difference. And to love with an open heart. Sometimes there may BE love in return, but I will choose to love anyway.

But when you're in front of an audience and you make them laugh at a new idea, you're guiding the whole being for the moment. No one is ever more him/herself than when they really laugh. Their defenses are down. It's very Zen-like, that moment. They are completely open, completely themselves when that message hits the brain and the laugh begins. That's when new ideas can be implanted. If a new idea slips in at that moment, it has a chance to grow.   [George Carlin, Last Words]

Years ago I saw George Carlin. I was sick and I went anyway. I felt horrible, but he just kept making me laugh. Laughing times seem to stand taller than the others I remember.

There's nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn't even have to matter what they're laughing about.   [Criss Jami]

Giggling along…

I love you, Currie

Love the Maya quote!! I had the same experience with George Carlin. I was having some sort of allergic reaction but went to see him anyway and was miserable but loved his show.

Oh, I would have loved to see George Carlin in person!! He had such a mind! And could always make you laugh at the absurdity of us human beings. I would have gone sick, too!! ;)
