Weaving the seriousness of life with laughter and delight is a necessary skill for sanity and life enjoyed. I can be overly serious and tend to focus on heavy duty matters like #ATreeAboutMe and a #TreeOfLife but I also love to laugh.
I learned from an early age how to be comedic relief in tense moments. Why sit in awkwardness when we can just laugh about it?
So, I make jokes.
But, I can’t go for an hour without thinking about life and death because I believe our existence is a precious gift far too valuable to not consider. We all face hardship. We all have to choose to forgive or live a bitter, cynical life.
So, today I will embrace the tightrope walk of joy and sobriety and the seriousness of it all.
Like the tension?
