FUN MONDAY - TEARS
Mariposa : Let's talk about TEARS. What images spring to mind when you hear the word ‘tears’? Have you ever had tears of laughter and tears of joy? When was the last time you had tears of joy? Tears of laughter? Tell us about it!
Honnestly nothing comes into my mind when I hear the word "tears". Of course they are the expression of joy or sadness, like a rain drop which means that it is raining and wet. On a picture they look very much alike.
I had and have a lot of tears of laughter in fact that happens all the time, but I had never as long as I can remember tears of joy ! When I am happy, I don't cry. I would rather jump to the ceiling. There was a time in my life where I very often cried because I pitied myself. If you ask me why today, I don't know really, it was mostly during automn where I suffered from seasonal depressions during years. My favourite handkerchief was cat Pookie, her fur was always wet in autumn, poor thing.
I didn't cry either on my wedding, I secretely had swallowed a glass of cognac to calm my nerves, with the result that I was standing there in front of the pastor in my white long dress and had difficulties not to giggle.
Honnestly I don't remember when I cried last time, usually I cry when I am very, very furious because somebody hurt me, not by throwing a chair at my head but with hurting words.
My handkerchief Pookie, she is so compassionately
