The second edition of lumbung calling focuses on the lumbung value of Humor. Often taken for granted, and therefore overlooked, humor is inherently strategic. It can even be turned into a method, a mechanism, a lifeline to survival—whether as a self-defense tool or a powerful weapon. Humor allows us to laugh; it also allows us to release tension and make our lives bearable. It enables us to forget, albeit for a fleeting moment, so we can move on, live on. It helps us to render the hopeless hopeful. Perhaps humor is an element that makes us different from automatons and machines?
