Laughter and Tears

God taught me how to laugh. While growing through my pain, I accumulated a smidgen of wisdom and perspective, and these two traits pointed me to joy and laughter - the other side of life. Laughter and tears are the medicinal balm of life.

Pain will always change you. It will make you better, or it will make you worse. The key to growing through that pain, is your positive response. It is your choice. You, alone, decide. M. Scott Peck, in his now-famous book ?The Road Less Traveled? made the following statement: ?A wise man welcomes pain and sees it as a way to grow.? During my first divorce, I clung to that saying, milking it for all it was worth, using it to help me grow as much as possible. But by the time my second divorce rolled around, I was so tired of pain, that I cried like a baby. I lashed out. I revolted. ?No! I don?t want to grow anymore! Please God, let me stay a fool!? But God, our loving father, calmly stroked the furled brow of my heart and said, ?Relax child. Just relax. You don?t have to be perfect. You just have to survive. Relax, and I will help you.? And God did help me, but in the most unexpected way. God taught me how to laugh. While growing through my pain, I accumulated a smidgen of wisdom and perspective, and these two traits pointed me to joy and laughter - the other side of life. Laughter and tears are the medicinal balm of life. They both heal, empower, and exhort, but they were created to be mutually inclusive. They are two sides of the same coin. To have one and not the other is to go through life with a lop-sided personality. All tears and you may end up hopelessly bitter and morose. Conversely, too much laughter, and you may dance through life, never growing wise, never grappling with the eternal questions of ?Why?.Laughter and tears are beautiful gifts from God. Liken them to a pair of wonderful shoes. If you wear one, without the other, the best you can hope for is to limp along through life, doing less than what God intended for you.But if you can merge the two, incorporate both of them appropriately into your life, then you will be freed to live life fully and to better serve others.And now, I wish you the best, as you laugh and cry your way through God?s gift of life.--Skip Coryell?

Explores the range and complexity of human emotions and their transmission across cultural traditionsWhat makes us laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time? How do these two primal, seemingly discrete and non-verbal modes of expression intersect in everyday life and ritual, and what range of emotions do they evoke?

With a focus on the tragic, the comic and the tragicomic dimensions of laughter and tears in art, literature and performance, as well as on their emotional, socio-cultural and religious significance, it breaks new ground in the study of ancient and Byzantine affectivity.Key featuresIncludes an international cast of 25 distinguished contributors Prominence is given to performative arts and to interactions with other cultures Transitions from Late Antiquity to Byzantium, and from Byzantium to the Renaissance, form focal points from which contributors look backwards, forwards and sidewaysHighlights the variety, audacity and quality of the finest Byzantine works and the extent to which they anticipated the renaissance

When I started working on these poems, it was because I wanted to put a few in a folder as a surprise gift for my son, who was coming to visit me from Italy. He was visibly moved when he read them, so I knew I was on the right track. After he was stricken with ALS, I decided maybe I could put together a book of poems in his memory. I hope they are enjoyed by all.
