A good laugh heals a lot of hurts. — Madeleine L’Engle

Wise women (which includes men) through the ages have affirmed the healing powers of laughter.  Recently scientists, not faking, have confirmed this wisdom.  As the bumper sticker says, “S**t Happens.”  Laughter is a superb way to make compost of that s**t.

Bring stories to share of your life experiences that you have transformed through a lens of laughter.

Cancer is probably the unfunniest thing in the world, but I’m a comedian, and even cancer couldn’t stop me from seeing the humor in what I went through. — Gilda Radner

Make Gilda proud.  Cultivate the comedian in yourself.

This circle invites all humans who have laughed at themselves.  Come as often as you are able.

Hosted by James DeLong, a renewing post-academic who has been described as quirky by those who know him.  He’s also good at making up stories that he thinks are true, much to the chagrin of his family members.  His 2019 New Year’s resolution is to cultivate irreverence.
