THE LAUGHING CROWD
John Cleese once said, “a wonderful thing about true laughter is that it just destroys any kind of system of dividing people” and by doing this, it gifts us freedom to connect.
What follows is my own story of how humour and the powerful effects of its expression have accompanied me my entire life. You could refer to it as the generative force of ‘playfulness’ in the context of the three archytypes – playfulness, strength and softness. As I write this story looking back, I notice and give voice also to what my present day self recognises as aspects of generativity at play.
