It’s been a little intense around here lately. So I decided we needed to laugh. (Also, I’m leading my church’s women’s retreat this weekend and didn’t have time to write a real post…)
So, for your viewing pleasure, here are three videos I’ve seen in recent months that made me smile, sigh happily, or laugh. You’ve probably seen one (or all) of them, but that’s okay. Laughter is great medicine.
First, the story of a bookstore, a World War II propaganda poster, and a motto to live by.
I liked that one so much I bought the mug.
Second, here’s Billy Collins, one of my favorite living poets, giving a TED talk. Make sure you watch the whole thing. The last poem is a hoot. (Many thanks to my T.S. Poetry colleague, Matthew Kreider, for putting this one in front of me.)
Third, my sister introduced me to Guy on a Buffalo in January. If you don’t know Guy on a Buffalo, you’re in for a treat. Or maybe not: my husband finds it merely amusing, whereas I laugh so hard I have to cross my legs.
Baby in the weeds? Awesome! Git outta here kitty cat!
