(image) So, Dedark. So, it's like the dark, but it's not. It's dedark. And whatever it really is, we can be sure of one thing - it's not a happy place. And, what makes it even sadder is that we're the one's who are imagining it into being. Dedark.

Can't blame 'em, actually. Humor-wise, sometimes a little self-defeat, sometimes a little beating up on someone or something else is what we need. I guess some of us aren't the same. Maybe the jokes we tell each other are more fun when we seem aggressive or self-defeated

(image) There's fun in them thar hugs, in them huggins and kissins and packings and arriving together. Sure, the joys may be small, but they're also shared. And a shared joy, my dear Hermy, can be even more joyful.

(image) That's also a what you might call a "Playful "Practice".
We just play anyway.
We don't stop. We don't argue with ourselves or anyone else's. We let ourselves have fun. Deep fun, of course. We play openly, lovingly, fearlessly, empathetically, emphatically, naturally. We play completely.

(image) And this piece of art, or perhaps all the pieces in an exhibition of the Gregson oeuvre, is something that calls people to play. With art. With their own artistic sensibilities. Perhaps even with each other.

(image) Carnival is good when it lets people present the best part of themselves, and be, for a little while, as they'd like to be all the time. Carnival is good when it gives people the feeling that they're really lucky to be alive right here and now. Carnival is good when it leaves people with the feeling that life in all its bizarre manifestations is unbeatably lovely and touching and funny and worthwhile.
