To Laugh About …
With the rain and cold of this winter came the Kookaburra family to the garden, the male and female. Mates alone, with the young from last season gone to find their own place to live and die.
I suspect a shortage of food around these parts, suburbia, where people keep tidy gardens. It seems to be a rule of mind, with the occasional refreshing wildness.
These birds know where their bread is buttered, a plethora of small lizards to be found scuttling around my garden, plucked mid-stride. Gulped.
Every now and then a sudden raucous noise hits my ears, the distinctive ‘ HA HA HA, HO HO HO, HAHAHA’. Well, something like that.
They remind me of the practicality and diversity of nature, and to laugh – while they scan the ground for a morsel.
A proper laugh strategically applied can change the pattern or weight of a mind.
Does mind have weight, or is it the gravity of the past that tugs?
