For Every Laugh There Should Be a Tear

Walt Disney once said, about making his animated features that, “for every laugh there should be a tear.” It’s funny because life is like that too sometimes… for every laugh there is a tear. I think I’ve been in the tear phase of my life. Four months ago, I walked into work. Eight hours later, […]
