Smiles seem to keep finding me – and I absolutely love it. I’m not just talking about pleasant, happy, or pleasing events (though I will gladly take those, too), but actual
honest-to-goodness physical smiles keep crossing my path. Another one occurred early this morning…
I was walking from the parking garage (where my car hangs out during the day) to the office building (where *I* hang out during the day [i.e., work]), when the following thought entered my mind: “Hmm, I wonder what event today will be the one I write about tonight? I wonder where today’s smile might come from?” No sooner had the thought finished forming in my brain did I turn a corner, look up, and see this:
So far I’ve seen smiles in the snow, in skyscrapers, in my food – and now in construction sites. Awesome! This adventure is so amazingly fun; I’m delighted to see where it might lead next…
They seek you here,
They seek you there,
They seek you everywhere. 🙂
Jonathan, I love this! It reminds me of Dr. Seuss – very lilting, and lyrical, and lovely. 🙂
not to mention all the smiles you’re collecting – the one (s) on the face(s) of your readers.
Very good point! I love the idea (and imagery) of collecting people’s smiles; you just created quite the fun scene in my mind. 🙂
Now that is just weird, cool, and probably missed by everyone who passed it that day, except for you.
Weird and cool, absolutely. Those smiles are sneaky little buggers, I tell ya… 😉
