Laughing

When you laugh are you aware that its the best form of medicine for your body. I laugh everyday Do You? I make my wife Ruth laugh everyday. I as my mate Nathan when was the last time you had a good laugh. Is this a question you ask yourself. Are you a person that laughs daily, I act daft like I always have, from childhood to the Bakery to the Army where ever I have been I love making people laugh.

Answering the door to people on my knees, hiding from my wife, wearing cheap Wigs, walking funny, pulling a face, freezing in one position for 60 secs. Yes it all sounds like I should be in a home for the insane, but I am So Happy laughing everyday.

I laugh at Ruth when she takes me off, I laugh at Bella our African Grey Parrot at the things she says. I watch Norman Wisdom, Laurel and Hardy old speeded up movies, Bob Hope all the funny bits that still 50 years later tickle me.

Remember as a child when you laughed all day laughed it made you cry, laughing that hurt your stomach, made you roll round on the floor. But as you get older it it becomes less frequent sometimes even a smile is hard work.

When I laugh it triggers healthy physical and emotional changes in my body. The benefits are many, my immune system gains strength, it boosts my moods, it protects me from stress. I feel balanced and young at heart.

It is free when you want, no prescription needed it protects my heart and my endorphins are released a feeling of well being and pain relief.

My mobile rings its a video call, a lad I have known for years just looks at me and we begin to laugh. The laughter is a Vision we both see an image of something so daft and far fetched only we can see it. The laughter turns to tears if joy the a pain in the back of the head. We both feel it.

Laughter is my Medicine to a Long Happy Life.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
