It’s time for you to

Be serious about fun

From grins to giggles

Sign up for mirth marathons

Tickle many funny bones

count me in


Five, four, three, two, RUN!

Heels kicking up as you fly

Moving like the wind

Five, four, three, two, FUN!

Laughing from your very core

Could do it all day

Five, four, three, two, SUN!

All the colors are brighter

Shadows dance with you

Writer’s Quote Wednesday LAUGHTER


Emerson’s famous quote always puts a smile on my face.  To imagine that flowers are the earth’s way of showing laughter is a most pleasant visual. Many people smile when they see a field of buttercups, a row of tulips or a trellis of roses. Even those, such as myself, who have allergies to the fragrance of flowers, might still love seeing them.

Carnations and lavender are the exception to my allergy symptoms.  I’ve no idea why but am eternally grateful, especially for the lavender, whose essential oil is a staple in my medicine chest. If you have never looked into essential oils to learn more about their therapeutic properties, please allow me to invite you to do just that. Many companies exist, from whom you can purchase countless varieties of pure, single oils to layered blends designed to ease stress or help you find more energy. Back in the 1990’s I studied with the Nelson Bach company to dispense their Bach Flower Remedies. And when Uttati International came to my area, I took their essential oil classes. To this day, I still use these products as well as the knowledge I gained.

So, back to the thought of flowers being the way the earth laughs…

 There are distant sounds

Ringing like chimes across fields

Calling to our ears

From o’er yon mountain

Delight entreats us hither

Relax, lighten up

A feast for the soul

Compliments of Mother Earth

Laugh lines ‘round the eyes
