Alan Alda, in MASH.
My friend Gwen.
The only way to describe their laughter is you hear it and want to make it happen again.
As I navigate the world of medicine, not wanting to hear things I need to, and have things done to fix things, I realize laughter is freeing and healing. For awhile I forget. Just for awhile I am normal.
If you can count a snort-producing laugh normal. Jon Stewart, MASH, Hot in Cleveland, Airplane…
I will keep watching. Keep producing those healing endorphins. And try to face things that aren’t so great, knowing they are temporary and laughter is forever.
