For me, I’m usually crying and then it somehow I’m laughing.  I’ve discovered there’s a thin line between the two and no one can tell you where and when one side is going to spill over into the other.  You don’t intend for this to happen but when it does, and it’s happened to most of us, the two emotions melt together… Read More
