When I Learned To Laugh

It felt good.

Though it showed my fillings

And my wrinkled eyes

And my rolly neck

And the sound that escaped

Was not melodious.


It felt good.


This is really about drawing something new.

Fortunately I cannot draw my fillings

Or my wrinkly eyes and rolly neck.

And you can’t hear the sound,


Because it’s pretty loud.

And this isΒ kind of a metaphor.

You probably figured that out.

      • We are our own worst critics. When I held Skyler for the first years of his life, playing in the sofa cushion gym I built for him or under r the table fort, there are lots of photos that my oldest daughter took. When I once pointed out that I was probably 45 lbs overweight, she said “Skyler loves you the way you are. You will always be his Nana. His love is unconditional.” So true and I stopped being so “vain.” πŸ™‚ β™‘

  1. Ah yes, but laughter and a good night’s sleep are the two best cures to about anything or so the proverb goes. Love a good laugh πŸ™‚


  2. My likes not working but I love this. I love belly laughs, and I do that a lot, I laugh out loud even by myself. Love your artwork, and I am sure I would love your laugh out loud!
