Monday morning....

"Woe to the bozo who says No to tee hee ho ho and ha ha" indeed! My donkey neighbors and the surfing dog on Baldwin Beach, Maui, know all about it -- I seem to get in touch with it best while in nature too:

ODE TO GAIETY

Go gloom
Begone glum and grim
Off with the drab drear and grumble
It's time
its pastime
to come undone and come out laughing
time to wrap killjoys in wet blankets
and feed them to the sourpusses

Come frisky pals
Come forth wily wags
Loosen your screws and get off your rocker
Untie the strait lacer
Tie up the smarty pants
Tickle the crosspatch with josh and guffaw
Share quips and pranks with every victim
of grouch pomposity or blah

Woe to the bozo who says No to
tee hee ho ho and ha ha
Boo to the cleancut klutz who
wipes the smile off his face
Without gaiety
freedom is a chastity belt
Without gaiety
life is a wooden kimono

Come cheerful chums
Cut up and carry on
Crack your pots and split your sides
Boggle the bellyacher
Convulse the worrywart
Pratfall the prissy poos and the fuddy duds
Take drollery to heart or end up a deadhead
at the guillotine of the mindless

Be wise and go merry round
whatever you cherish
what you love to enjoy what you live to exert
And when the high spirits
call your number up
count on merriment all the way to the countdown
Long live hilarity euphoria and flumadiddle
Long live gaiety
for all the laity

-- James Broughton

    "Here, here" is my best response to this. If we cannot laugh at ourselves and at life and the things we love to do, then it all becomes pretty boring!!!!

    So "ha ha" to you, my friend!!!!!!

    Maha, Broughton was quite a writer.. and when you share his words they become more meaningful and powerful. It is truly a great way to get in touch with yourself. "Come frisky pals
    Come forth wily wags
    Loosen your screws and get off your rocker
    Untie the strait lacer
    Tie up the smarty pants "

    Yep, time to lighten up and get on with having a little fun in life. I know I have been guilty (so I have been told) that I take life 'way too serious'.

    Have a super week.
    Bless you
    Hugs

    Maha, you are one of a kind (unfortunately for all the rest of us) You see things so much clearer than anyone I know. I love the blog! I do try to be a cheerful chum and to Cut up and carry on Crack your pots and split your sides Boggle the bellyacher and Convulse the worrywart. Life has no value if you cannot enjoy the ridiculousness of it. Thanks for bringing me the first smile today as I attack the "serious" work I do today.

    And you are blessed!
