Poetry Friday

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.

~ William James ~


  1. I love this, Diane. I'm not sure I agree with it, because I seem to know a lot of people with one sense or the other, but not both. But I guess that's the point? You might only get one, which depends on the speed your brain moves at. I'm going to be thinking about this one--thanks!

  2. I'm still trying to puzzle it out myself, Laura, that's why I thought it was good for Poetry Friday!

  3. Thanks for the nudge, Laura:


    With the music we lift our
    feet, our arms float. Our hands
    take on a life of their own. As
    the tempo picks up we laugh
    for we know what Common
    Sense said is true, "You can't
    dance with a broken heart."
