It’s actually not too much of a secret. I laugh a lot. I bring mirth and jokes to most instances. I like to be jolly. Yet, I’m also a curmudgeon. Can’t help it. I’m a New Yorker. A sunny curmudgeon. I openly claim such a title.
Now, what is a secret is how I manage to laugh in most instances. I often joke. If it weren’t for laughter, I’d be crying. It’s a joke. But as we know, every joke has a grain of truth to it.
My secret skill is my ability to still put a smile on what would rather be a frown. Actually, I’d rather smile than frown. Frowning causes wrinkles. Frowning creates a sad biofeedback loop. Thus, I may, at times, will myself into a smile and into causing me to have a moment of levity.
Even at the recent memorial I held, I was able to smile and laugh. Because laughter is power. And, even sad moments can bring about memories in which there were good times. And, we should allow ourselves to float in those memories and help bring comfort to others as well.

SMiLes Back in the Days Our Child Ryan Spent
in the NeoNatal Unit At Shand’s Hospital in
Gainesville All that Kept the Doctor’s
Sanity As They Related Were the
Often Dark Jokes They Told
For Levity of The Tragic-Comedy
Life Will Come to Be And They Said
if They Had Seen All the Reality of What
Birth And Death
Children to Life They Might
Have Reconsidered The Endeavor
All Together It Was Surely Enough
For me to Take Pause And Notice
The Tragic-Comedy of Life
And It’s True Given A
Choice Rather Be
An April Fool
Puss For Real
As i’ve Done That too
Yes Dear Miriam THere is Enough Falling
Worth Whatever It Takes to Lift With SMiLes..:)

Walking. Getting through the day without 3-5 naps; staying awake like non-toddlers. Easy superpowers to grant.
