"I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love
than to be a success at something you hate."
I forget many things, but I never forget to laugh. Laughter happens. Reasons vary- a memory, a 'surprise', nervousness, but the best laughter is natural, an element of the moment, poured out. Sometimes laughter defies our control. Recently I was having a conversation with a friend, discussing some of the challenges of teaching High School. Before I realized the thought had formed, I said, "Sometimes I'd rather be making tombstones!" And then, I laughed.
