OLD FOLKS. MAYA ANGELOU.
Their laughter is loud, spontaneous and uncontrolled – a sound that reflects pure joy.
When old folks laugh, they free the world.
Their lack of restraint inspires the rest of us to throw off some of the cares of the world.
‘Old folks allow their bellies to jiggle like slow tambourines’
Their bellies are compared to tambourines because of the gentle movements and the sounds they make when they giggle or laugh quietly.
