“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.” ~ John Cleese


There’s been no shortage of tragedy & grief since Covid-19 wreaked havoc in our families, communities, countries and every corner of our world in 2020.  I’m sure if we were to sit together in a Zoom session and share with each the things that are currently breaking our hearts now, a few hours just won’t be enough.

There’s time, space and value in sharing our heartbreaks but, for this moment in our collective history when things feel especially heavy, I invite us to fill the cracks in our hearts with just a little bit of…silliness.  Why?  To help us keep our hearts open, to soften, to be vulnerable:

“Buddhist philosopher Joanna Macy says that when your heart breaks, the universe can pour through. That is how it is. When the universe pours through, so, too, does the creativity of the universe. How many comedians are funny in spite of and because of deep tragedies in their life, which have opened their souls up to the ultimate paradoxes of living? Humor and paradox are often the only ways to respond to life’s sorrows with grace. Humor, too, seems built into the fabric of the universe, so filled with paradox and surprise and uncanny combinations.”

~ Matthew Fox, “Creativity: Where the Divine and Human Meet”

Or maybe, to simply continue being each an optimist or “someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster; it’s more like a cha-cha.”

I don’t have any jokes of my own to share (lucky you!), but I’ve found the perfect mix of ridiculously popular music videos and hilariously wise-ass comments from ordinary people all over the world during this Covid-season.  So please enjoy and, if so moved, listen in, dance any which way you want to and howl with laughter along with the entire YouTube playlist at Covid-season Quips to Insane Music Hits:

My dog thinks the old man has lost it because I dance around the house when I listen to this song. LOL. (When) I turn the volume up, I (can just hear my) neighbors saying, ‘He is partying again.’ LOL.”
