    Gregory, I am glad you are learning to smile.. I have a daughter who lost her son, and it takes a lot to make her smile... but this is not the case here... glad you shared your senryu... luv~ LINDA

    i'm sorry to hear about your daughter. i smile and laugh a lot. i didn't mean to give the impress that i am "learning" to as much as i wanted to project the importance and therapuetic value of laughter and smiling. i have lost many family members in my life and have learned at a young age to keep smiling (even after the tears have fallen-because they have value too). :-)
