I was reminded last night of the wonderful power of strong laughter, as a group of women I admire and enjoy sat in my living room gabbing, and laughing. It felt so right, and so powerful, to laugh out loud with these fabulous women.
We do laugh a lot in this house. I live with two guys who enjoy 12-year-old boy humour, and I am fortunate enough that both of them also have a sly sense of comedy at times. Bushboy is an intense kid, so when he feels joy, the laughter is big and loud and long.
But there is something about the shared laughter of women, women who can relate to and understand the humour in a woman’s everyday life. It is joyous, and I am ever so grateful for it.Laugh too loud. When people look at you, Laugh louder.
