The year is about to end. Time to read self-help books, listen to digitized motivational speakers, or surf the net to see what others are doing to prepare for 2019. I’ve been here before, many times, and I can honestly say I don’t have the answers other than to say it is time to think.
At the top of my list is laughter, the out loud kind that breaks through my self-imposed controls that have been put there for reasons I no longer remember. Maybe I’ll sing in the morning, or whack the guitar for a bit. But above all I will laugh at something, probably myself in most cases.
I see laughter as the opposite of anger and there has been too much rage as I am bombarded every day with news of our country’s leader who is a self-centered coward with limited mental abilities and no sense of honor or decency. The horror of Trump just oozes from my every pore and I’ve let it decimate my laugh cells, the few that remain. The only reasonable reaction is to do positive work by helping others while supporting the democratic system in place to replace elected leaders who violate the rule of law, including justice for all.
