“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

—Victor Hugo, 19th Century French poet/novelist

This time of year, many people – particularly those in their retirement years – head south to sunnier skies and warmer temperatures. These “snow birds” are somewhat reborn and experience greater youthful vitality when they head off to winter camp.

Many of us, including myself, who are still working and live in a climate that gets a full dose of winter, can feel a bit down at times and long for an early spring.


How might you bring truckloads of laughter – instead of road salt – to your days to drive away the winter blues and brighten your worlds?
