Sunshine and Music-- Nourishment for a Rainy Winter Day

A laugh is just like sunshine. It freshens all the day,
It tips the peak of life with light,
And drives the clouds away.

The soul grows glad that hears itAnd feels its courage strong.
A laugh is just like sunshine
For cheering folks along.

A laugh is just like music,It lingers in the heart,
And where its melody is heard
The ills of life depart;

And happy thoughts come crowding
Its joyful notes to greet;
A laugh is just like musi
For making living sweet.

I was reminded of Uncle Albert from the Walt Disney movie "Mary Poppins" as I viewed this priceless piece of video....

Our conversation at table that evening had begun with a friend saying that, when he first heard my voice on the phone, I sounded like Orson Wells to him.
I was thinking about Orson Wells cackling away in the forties as the Shadow...
I decided to cackle away as a funny man in the video...
I think I shall do that a few more times...
