Mary Fridley and Marian Rich perform how laughing matters

Two laughs are better than one….

Marian Rich and Mary Fridley’s workshop this past weekend, Laughing Matters:  A Playful/Philosophical Approach to Creating Humor, drew 25 people interested in learning to create environments to bring more humor, laughter and lightness into their lives. (No small feat!) “We made some magic,” says Fridley. “We talked about the distinction between being funny, making people laugh and creating humor,” says Rich. “People grow when they can create a space for being humorous with others.  We can all do that — even if we’re not funny!”
