Let there be Light 2017: No 1
Gangsters’ Paradise musician Coolio said “Life is too short to not have fun; we are only here for a short time compared to the sun and the moon and all that.”
Putting our worries, opinions and judgements to one side to have a belly laugh can sometimes feel impossible yet laughter is common in the face of adversity.
Deploying our senses to spot subtle changes in a face or body posture, or to notice the minor nuances of tone, emphasis, language and sentence construction requires us to be present in the moment and not off somewhere else in our heads worrying or dreaming about something else.
Happy 2017. How about a few more belly laughs in the moment this time around?
