Childhood’s Hour – A Quintessential Truth #12
What can we create inside of one hour
when we are a child we can build a pillow tower
A couch fort to hide in
A castle of power
the things we create inside that one hour.
When we are young with no cares in the world it is easy to be creative. Tapping our imagination comes so easily. We take out our toys and the world is ours. As we grow older we often lose this ability or we become scared to show for others will laugh or believe us immature. I’m okay with that. I like being in touch with my inner child. Especially when my body is again far faster than it should. Being silly at times makes me laugh. I love to laugh. I’ve laughed so hard I’ve peed a little which makes me laugh even more. I have laughed til I’ve cried. I have laughed til I’ve coughed myself sick. now that’s some laughing!
At forty-six I will still build a couch fort, colour in colouring books and watch looneytunes. Laughter is definitely the best medicine and when I can laugh at myself, even though I’m in incredible pain or so incredibly sick on some days, laughing even for a second brings relief.
Laugh at least once a day
there’s always a way
a joke, a story
keeps woes at bay.
yuck it on up
laugh til you have tears in your eyes
mess that pretty make-up job up.
laugh it on out
scream joy and shout.
