April Fools Edition, 2015
Welcome April!

May the Wind tickle your Nose
and Snow touch your Nose
My, that is a striking Pose!
You look so much like a Rose!

May your backward steps take you forward
May your forward steps bring you back home...

Up is Down
and Sideways is Straight Ahead

And remember...

You can never step on the same piece of water twice!

Smile folks!

 

From the Storyteller....

Black Elk was noted for his Life and for is Words. His words are wise and insightful, for he understood things.

At a point in his life, he was initiated as a Heyoka or sacred clown, a most respected and yet feared position within many Native American cultures. He wrote:

“In the Heyoka ceremony, everything is backwards, and it is planned that the people shall be made to feel jolly and happy first, so that it may be easier for the power to come to them. You have noticed that the truth comes into this world with two faces. One is sad with suffering, and the other laughs; but it is the same face, laughing or weeping. When people are already in despair, maybe the laughing face is better for them; and when they feel too good and are too sure of being safe, maybe the weeping face is better for them to see.”

Dare to look at the World in a new manner...and always keep your humor at the forefront.

Food for Thought: Humor...

How hard do you laugh?

Do you laugh more at yourself or others? Why?

Can you laugh at yourself?

What is the funniest thing you have ever done?

Are you too easily embarrassed to be funny? Too ashamed??

Do people look at you when you laugh? What do they see?

Do you see laughter embedded in things that others fail to see?

What is your favorite joke? Tell it to yourself...what happens?

How often do you smile?

What happens when you blush?

Are you playful?
