Journal Entry: Fri Apr 5, 2013, 7:33 PM

:iconyesyesyesplz: Love and Laughter... YES!!

:iconallmyloveplz: Howdy folks!

In order to quiet some demons who've been quietly chewing and grumbling in their dark shut-away place in my mind (yes we all have them! :D)... I wrote a chilling poem, and immediately upon finishing it... I felt compelled to put it up :omg: But then I thought to myself... is it really true that misery loves company? :icontuzkidontknowplz: or did some fool just say that to make us all feel better at those moments when life's ups and downs bug our brains? :hmm:

So I shelved the ooh so pitiful poem and went back to work :phew: ...and while I worked, and listened to my latest audio book (being read :reading: by the incredibly talented Ann Flosnick!! :woohoo:)...I contemplated just what would be it's reaction? :confused:... and decided that disabling the comments would be best :nod: Then it came to me :stupidme: that if I didn't want to discuss anyone's reaction to what I had written... then why in the :earth: was I sharing it?? :faint:
and what in the world did I hope to gain from it's sharing?? :idea:
:confused: and has misery ever truly benefited from the company??
I think NOT! :no:

Soooooooooo :squee: I decided that any misery - that the grumbling demons had chosen to dish out - would best be quelled with laughter and love!! YES! good old ordinary laughter and fun :squee: I enjoy being silly, and the company of happy, loving people :love: ...and as Reader's Digest magazine always proclaimed when I was a kid... "Laughter is the best medicine!!" :dance: ...and I'd like to add to that proclamation... that my sweet hubby Bob TThealer56 and I have found that love
:love: is an even more powerful medicine for quelling misery!! :iconwoohooplz:

:wow: When we grew up enough... to be able to tell our friends that we LOVE :iconkissmote: them :love: ...without worrying about what folks - that might not understand the power of love and friendship and just good vibes and karma - might think of us declaring our love to peeps who weren't related to us by blood... Bob and I both felt liberated!! :meditation:

:aww: Those same friends now keep us sane - or as sane as we're ever gonna get :crazy: :psychotic: :evillaugh: - and in return we try to do the same for them, when their demons - whatever the nature - try to bother them :iconlovenodplz: But, we try to share our nasties in private - and since this journal is waaaay to public for that :omg: ...I decided to :poo: can the horridly maudlin poem I'd written (it's REALLY very easy to hit delete! :w00t:)... and to devote the same amount of time that I'd spent with the demons :devil: spreading a little love, light, laughter, and hope! :squee:

:iconbummy1::iconbummy2::iconbummy3: and now I feel better!! :iconbummy1::iconbummy2::iconbummy3:

:dance: Sooooooooooo... I immediately went and suggested this awesome deviation that Peggy :icontime-warrior: time-warrior put up for a Daily Deviation :dalove: and then decided to write this journal :blahblah:

I don't normally tell anyone that I've suggested their image for a DD - because my track record of actually succeeding in that direction is rather poor (I've only succeeded twice in the 6+ years that I've been on DA!) :giggle: ...but, this time, it's important to me :thanks: for Peggy to know that her deviation made my day!! :iconlovecatsplz: Even if the folks in charge of handing out Daily Deviations don't recognize this stellar image :ohmygod: ...I want everyone who reads this journal to know that it's a definite :winner::winner: as far as I am concerned! :iconcheerplz::iconcheerplz:
Thanks so much for sharing it with us Peggy! :iconkissmote: :tighthug:

And for those of you who are still curious about how my runaway stagecoach life is progressing?? :iconwonderingplz: :evillaugh: ...well :laughing: it still hasn't slowed down enough for me to be able to put both feet solidly on the ground, and be here as much as I want to be :cries: ...but, at the same time :woohoo: ...we're managing to pay our bills most of the time :iconmoneyplz::iconmoneyplz::iconmoneyplz: :fingerscrossed: and we won another award at our 2nd show in March :iconwoohooplz: ...then had a wonderful week of vacation :iconvacationplz: :relax: with our very good friend John :iconcorvidae65: Corvidae65 and his loverly and funny wife Audra.. after the first 2 shows :meditation: ...but, now we're flying again to be ready for the next 2 shows :eager: I hope you'll continue to be patient with me :iconsnuzzleplz: Maybe someday :fingerscrossed: I can manage to get the horses to slow down long enough for me to be here a tiny bit more :D ...before I have to jump back on the runaway stagecoach again! :rofl: :lmao:

In the meantime, please enjoy these features - that I think are ALL worthy of Daily Deviations!!
:winner: :iconplusfav: :winner: :iconplusfav: :winner:

:threaten: and don't forget to leave lots of those fancy stars
:iconplusfav: :iconreachforthestarsplz: :iconswingonastarplz: :iconplusfav:

:idea: :whisper: ...and instead of putting up something maudlin - take a page from my musings :please::please::please: - and spread a little love and happiness :iconhappysunplz: :iconcloudsplz: instead!! :squee:
You'll definitely feel better for it!! :love: :iconsomeconfettiplz: :love:

Thanks so much for being my friend!
