The Power of Joy and Laughter in the Face of Trauma

Thanks to Mitch for this heart warming and heart expanding film from the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan. Please have a watch if you want to feel the incredible soul and spirit of the Filipino’s. This is just beautiful — and a testament to what I’ve often shared and experienced about our choice to cry or to laugh in the face of trauma:

It reminds me of the Japanese poet, Masahide:

“My barn having burned to the ground, I can now see the moon.”
