Laughs

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable”

 Joseph Addison

This series was mainly a focus on what makes us who we are as humans. Our humanity is often defined by our appearance or what we know how to do like cooking, taking care of a family, dancing, etc. I believe our humanity is found in our values and beliefs. Joy is a strong emotion that drives what and who we put value in, so much that it defines us as humans. I placed this animals in comical places that would inspire laugh and smiles because I believe that we are truly human when we stop, rest and laugh. In joy is when we truly find ourselves and we are able to enjoy our humanity.
