Being Alive…

And if you should survive to 105,
Look at all you’ll derive out of being alive!
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart.


You may have noticed lately on Facebook, the many “Separated at Birth” posts that I have had fun with thanks to my daughter Anna’s IPhone camera.  It began with her simply taking my picture in a fun moment, of which we have many.  From there, I’d look at the picture and say “Wow, that look’s like” ……….and off I went..  As I reflect on who we used,  I have found it was my discovery of who has influenced me from childhood to help me uncover my purpose, to get others to laugh, and to shake them out of their slumber and to wake up and appreciate being alive.

Not all of them are comedians, but I realize now what they all have in common and you will see it in the pictures I have for them this coming week..   Look at their eyes.. The twinkle inside of them, like they know something that we do not.   It is not only the ability to make others laugh, they all also have the ability to laugh at themselves !   Do not take yourself so seriously, and wake yourself up so you can see this world for what it is,  a magical place filled with laughter and love…..   more to come….


You can go to extremes with impossible schemes.
You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams.
And life gets more exciting with each passing day.
And love is either in your heart, or on it’s way.

Don’t you know that it’s worth every treasure on earth
To be young at heart.
For as rich as you are, it’s much better by far
To be young at heart.

Thanks to my Angel for keeping me young, and this photo is for her…
