What Seems to Get in the Way

“Your brain is doing some great work when it’s laughing.” Jon Scieszka, children’s writer.

When Kris and I dated in 1977, Annie Hall was in the theaters for the first time. She and I took it in one evening.

I was laughing so hard Kris wasn’t sure if I was breathing. Woody Allen had taken the heartbreak of his breakup with Diane Keaton and turned it into a marvelous film.

The humor in the film was medicine for us all, as each of us deals with some heartbreak in life. 

May each of us, by God’s grace, steer through those difficulties better people on the other side.
