laughter and a view

the algerian asked me one day if i were an animal what kind would i like to be. i'd never considered that question but almost without hesitation answered 'a monkey' because they seem to have fun, they're silly and laugh all day ((well, at least, in my mind they do)). much later he showed me this picture that he had, i think his brother took it, of monkeys in algeria. they're not exactly laughing, but i don't know why, for some reason, they make me smile.

"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."
