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.

    Laughing is something I may do lightly, chuckling, Colleen. When I really laugh, I am so happy! πŸ˜€


    • It feels so good. And I can’t help but laugh all over again when I see a picture of me laughing. NONE of them look good! πŸ˜‰

        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™‘

    Laughter is always musical, MBC, and everybody carries a different tune. ❀ I'd love to hear your song. And see the video, too. πŸ˜‰
