The Magic of Smiles

Updated: Jan 28


I love this image that I took on a local island in the very far north of the Maldives 25 years ago.


These young people are radiating happiness, beauty and joy, shared with the world through the non-conditional gift of their smiles.


I have just found this quote...sums up my feelings...


“A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. “ Author Unknown


The power of a smile...

...in statistical terms unmeasurable; in all other ways immeasurable.

The easy way to make someone’s day...including your own.
