It’s a line from one of my favorite movies. Actually it’s an entire song. Donald O’Connor for president!
For a long time I relished the melancholy films. I still do now and then. But for the last few years I have been drawn to the feel good, comedic, and family films.
Donald O’Connor was right: the world wants to laugh. Life is hard enough. Maybe it’s a sign I’m getting old.
I have a goal to write a hilarious book. But that will probably be in another fifteen years when I’ve gained oodles of wisdom. I’ll have you know, although my resting face may convince you I’m nothing more than a melancholy philosopher, I’ll have you know my inner dialogue is cheeky and facetious.
I very much respect anyone who can make me laugh. But I find it quite difficult.
