I try to laugh

I show up. I listen. I try to laugh.

Generally, I laugh without trying. Except when I'm really uptight, then it's worth remembering to try. Thich Nat Han has a wonderful little exercise in which you practice smiling on every inhale (or is it exhale?) for 1 minute. Might be worth trying each way. Very sweet photo!

I love the look of ground frost on greens. Laughing is a very good thing.

Good to see some sunshine on the frosty huckleberries. The pond here is still frozen, even after it rained all night.

I like this quote, too:

Humor is a prelude to faith, and laughter is the beginning of prayer.
(Reinhold Niebuhr)

I could get lost in that photo, Dawn. Very nice and frosty with tons of colors. If not a laugh, then a smile, but not a frown = a better day.

For a laugh, I wonder if this frosty shrub is the same thing I know as Kinnickinick or Winterberry or Arctostopholous??? Fun to say, anyway. And a great photo. Hope more of your paintings will be posted soon, too.

thank you ladies! I know these poor plants are buried in the snow now. Sandy I dont know by any other name, though they are not like the huckelberries in the lowlands. These are a small blue berry.
