Adults always wait for the punch line as if it is their permission to laugh. Children just laugh, all the time. They laugh at everything and at nothing at all. They laugh because, as young and inexperienced as they are, they intuitively know that life is meant to be a joy. And that full moon blazing down on the necklace of surf breaking upon the circular reef, palm trees swaying in a gentle breeze, a flour-white beach arching around us, and the crystal clear and clean tropical waters of a remote lagoon caressing our bodies cannot be described as anything but a joy.
