Let us set aside this day for celebration and frivolity. It is good to take life seriously; it is also good to not take it too seriously. And even in our folly we may glean deeper meaning and purpose, by finding connection, and by experiencing pure joy. So go forth today with the face of the clown. Spread joy and happiness! Act silly! In so doing, we are fulfilling part of the cosmic promise – that we will experience as much as we possibly can in our brief visit. Making a fool of oneself is a birthright: exercise it. For silliness and the joy that comes with it we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
