Laughter:The best advice I've ever gotten!

The elderly patients at my job frequently complain about  the hardships of old age ."Don't get old!"  they exclaim. I smile and respond , "Ok...tell me how to avoid it!!" .Today I actually got an answer: : " Laughter! You might as well have one good laugh a day...it'll keep your heart young and you'll need laughter if you're going to make it in this lufe!" Sounds like good advice to me!


A laugh is a smile that bursts. ~Mary H. Waldrip


What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul. ~Yiddish Proverb
That is the best - to laugh with someone because you both think the same things are funny.” All you need in the world is love and laughter. That's all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other.

Fernando Botero
Fernando Botero Angulo (born April 19, 1932)born in Medellin Colombia. "By combining Renaissance and Baroque painting techniques with the colonial tradition of Latin America, Botero creates a figurative painting style that is universal in its appeal. He captures intimate moments in life - a woman bathing, a men's card game or a family posing for a photograph - depicting plump, nonchalant figures in everyday scenes.  Mr. Botero studied in Madrid at the San Fernando Academy, and in Florence where he learned the fresco techniques of the Italian masters."




Botero explains his use of these "large people", as they are often called by critics, in the following way:
"An artist is attracted to certain kinds of form without knowing why. You adopt a position intuitively; only later do you attempt to rationalize or even justify it."
