Laughter is free

There have been times in my life when finances have been precarious. I have been fortunate to spend time in favelas in Brazil where finances are always precarious.

Laughter is free. No matter the circumstances, laughter changes the field, switching a negative atmosphere to a positive one. The people in the favelas laughed all the time.

Laughter releases compressed, trapped energy. 

It brings us back to our humanity. 

When there appears no other choice, pull some ridiculous meme from where ever you can find it and laugh.
