Comedy …

Listening to comedians today … always such angry individuals underneath all that laughter …

Seeing with clear eyes, they have no patience for the bullshit in this world … with the only sane and and rational response being humour … because otherwise they might drown under the weight of their frustration and disillusionment ….

Lashing out with words that cut … words that reveal … words that illuminate … but always in a way that disarms so as to grab their audience’s attention … they demand to be heard …

The true comedian is a courageous warrior … stalking this crazy world … taking no prisoners …

Bill Hicks … George Carlin … Robin Williams …. Chris Rock … Richard Pryor … and others …

Each with their own style but always intelligent … always so clear headed and open hearted … just recognizing the absurdity around them and pointing it out … making us see that which we might otherwise miss …

And while I can never have that talent … that ability to shine a light in dark places with a smile … I can take their wisdom and keep it in my heart … in that place where the dreams of all great souls are kept … for they are dreaming too … and what they share is themselves …
