THE POWER OF A SMILE The power of a gun can kill and the power of fire can burn The power of wind can chill and the power of a mind can learn The power of anger can rage inside until it tears you apart But the power of a smile, especially yours, can heal a frozen heart – Tupac Shakur
These days, with everyone wearing a mask, I’m really missing the smiles.
“We human beings have survived for a thousand generations, helping one another and inspiring each other. We know how to do this. Instead of getting caught in collective fear and anxiety, we can remember to take a breath, center ourselves, and take practical precautions and protections, but calmly and in the spirit of love. Each of us can contribute to the well-being of ourselves, our communities and our world.” – Jack Kornfield
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, If a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, If the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive. – Eleonora Duse
