Laughing and Fighting for Freedom
'So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds,
but don't you forget to have fun doin' it.

I think the world should keep laughing.'
An Extravert's Active Meditation
How does an extrovert rebalance and refresh? This one does it by scanning her environment for words and messages until one speaks to her.
Today's message 'Healing Laughter' provided me a week's worth of active meditation through studying, contemplating, drawing, painting and putting together a visual display of Healing Laughter and what that means to me. And like a true extravert, I am compelled to share a bit of lightness with the world.
Wishing you a big helping of Hearty Laughter today!
