Ode Magazine

Ode Magazine is subtitled “For Intelligent Optimists” and this month’s issue (August) is all about laughter – all the great things I consistently lecture about:  how laughter evolved, the health benefits, why laughter in the workplace is a great thing, etc.  But the best part of the whole issue is the cover.  A radiantly beautiful African woman of many years beams out at you with a laugh on her face you can feel.  She’s beside herself with joy.  On the cover it asks "Why is this woman laughing?"  The editorial inside explains:  “because her grandson became President of the United States".
