"BE A CLOWN" by Rich Lalama
Porter once sang "Be a clown, be a clown, all the world loves a clown." I never grew up wanting to be a clown.
Never thought about it until now. One of my quirks for a long time has been "spreading Love around
the world one hug at a time." I hug everyone that wants or needs a hug. It just seems to lift the spirit.
Doesn't a clown make the world a better place - one smile at a time? Doesn't a clown spread happiness - one
giggle at a time? I can think of very few things in life that are as uplifting as children laughing. There is
no better music that can be played - even by the most accomplished orchestras. One of the finest entertainers
in history, Red Skelton said, "God's children and their happiness are my reasons for being." I cannot think
of a better purpose in life than helping to make someone's (child or adult) dream come true, paving the way with
Hope, Hugs, and Happiness.
If having fun and spreading joy and laughter is an interesting and inviting idea for you, why not think about becoming a Clown?
It might be a little work, a little embarrasing, a little awkward, and a little something else, but it surely is very
rewarding and it sure is a lot of fun. If you need more encouragement, let me know, I can give you a hug and everything
will be all right.
