The beauty of the world has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.
—Virginia Woolf

Yes, laughter…something, I experienced this past week-end.  I thought it had disappeared from life.  On Friday, I met with  an Attorney, and he suggested that I get my ‘good nature’ back.  Wow, that simple statement opened eyes.  What perception for a man who had just met me. Then I spent the weekend laughing…oh, how I have missed laughter.   The world does have two edges and mine has been the world  of  distress that I have created.   True, there are  contributing events, but I have a choice on how to respond to those circumstances.   I have let that edge suffering take over.   Today,  I’m choosing laughter, not anguish, no matter the circumstance.
