We had a great day at church, learning, delivering food, enjoying a Thanksgiving meal together and watching a movie. I knew a few people, and they’re great, but there were so many people I didn’t know. At first the room was very full, but as the afternoon went on people trickled out. As the group got smaller we all felt more comfortable with each other, even though we weren’t taking directly. And we laughed together.
Day 10: Laughter doesn’t require previous intimacy. It’s easier to laugh with friends and people you know, but as long as you are all open and willing, you can laugh with anyone. Some of the most freeing laughter can come from a brief exchange with a stranger. So let your guard down from time to time and make a well-timed wisecrack if you dare.
