30K. Tarot card, 3x5", 1978-1981 by Chris Wayan

The card of gut laughter.

Humor's one of the strongest emotions--its physical manifestation is as loud and uncontrollable as crying or orgasm. Strange--it's treated in Euro-American culture like a frill, somehow less primal than, say, anger or fear or grief or misery.

You know. Mature emotions.

Maybe it's because only a handful of creatures besides us grasp the very concept of humor. Unlike the other emotions, it require awareness of self and other.

LISTS AND LINKS: Tarot - ink - humor and laughter - for contrast, anger and grief
