Sometimes, you just have to laugh looking back at decision points and paths taken — or worse, not taken. Life’s a game, when all is said and done. Sometimes you win and others you lose. Attitude counts. I like to experiment with senryu to capture life’s little ironies. It allows a certain amount of head-shaking and finger-pointing without going into a maudlin diatribe. It frees some space for that best of all medicines — laughter.
