Word Paths • Laughter


Everyone has a word path. One word leads to another.
Word Paths have  been a Friday feature showcasing possibilities in written words, creative process and artistic pieces from the beginning of my blog You can go here, to my first post on this project and see how it all started. I posted this at midnight on Friday, so this post reads Saturday. Now there's a laugh!
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. e.e. cummings 

Laughter and it's lovely sounds. I just love the embrace of giggles and belly laughs of joy which hug you till you smile and join in and laugh along. Contagious I would say. Like dancing laughter has a way of lightening the mood, we need to do more of both wouldn't you say? Here are some quotes I found. Pick your favorites.

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 the love in return. Maya Angelou 

A good laugh is sunshine in the house. 

William Makepeace Thackeray

A good time to laugh is any time you can.  ~Linda Ellerbee

A good, real, unrestrained, hearty laugh is a sort of glorified internal massage, performed rapidly and automatically.  It manipulates and revitalizes corners and unexplored crannies of the system that are unresponsive to most other exercise methods.  ~Author unknown, from an editorial in New-York Tribune, quoted in Quotations for Special Occasions by Maud van Buren
