Old Ones say that one of the greatest healing powers in our life is the
ability to laugh.

But we aren't a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in
our existence, they wouldn't want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying

seemingly tragic experiences out of the past. But why shouldn't we laugh?

Grandfather remind me to laugh today.
