“Tears are good…

April 2, 2013

“Tears are good but they are always archival, they pull us back and down, they mourn, they seek to repeat, but laughter throws us forward, levity raises us, the body opens. Laughter is always unruly. The goofy is the body’s blooming in the mind. Let us laugh so hard we disrupt the tragedy! It’s hard to think when we laugh and that is one reason, once it was invented, we could not live without it. It is a way of sleeping while feeling intensely awake. The body is jostling itself into rejuvenation. It’s like having sex!” – Dean Young, The Art of Recklessness
