Smile

tmblr1

“One smile has the power to…
Calm fears.
Soften stone walls.
Warm a cold heart.
Invite a new friend.
Mimic a loving hug.
Beautify the bearer.
Lighten heavy loads.
Promote good deeds.
Brighten a gloomy day.
Comfort a grieving spirit.
Offer hope to the forlorn.
Send a message of caring.
Lift the downtrodden soul.
Patch up invisible wounds.
Weaken the hold of misery.
Act as medicine for suffering.
Attract the companionship of many.
Fulfill the human need for recognition.
Who knew changing the world would prove so simple?”  Rachel Goodrich

The Narrow Ribbon

“Footsteps in the sand. Quickly washed away. The seashore mind…

Going to the beach means walking in fresh air, listening to the sound of waves, feeling the grit of sand beneath our feet.

The narrow ribbon between land and ocean is a perfect place to understand the mind of wisdom”.  Deng Ming-Dao
