[The laughter character is done by the calligrapher Kazu Mori of Akaze, Komatsu, Japan. He did the poster you can see at http://osugimusicaltheatre.com/, and below the poster is a photo of him at work.]
And, now, dear reader, I share the beautiful laughter kanji with you to print or frame or pass along or just to look at. You can get it at http://www.worldlaughtertour.com/images/kanji.jpg. In the midst of a catastrophic event, some who survive continue their work –even re-double their efforts-- for peace and laughter. I am happy to have this friendship.
