Small Stone - Smile

I need to smile more
even when I'm low
worry on my mind
heart heavy

especially when
frustration looms
sadness gathers
anger brews

even a fake smile
lowers blood pressure
heightens immunity
slows the heart rate

Are you smiling back at this lady? I hope so! 

I went early this morning to walk through the entries in Breckenridge's International Snow Sculpture Championships. This is the Wisconsin entry which won 3rd place. Not only was I smiling at the lady, I was also smiling because there were no crowds. The weekend brought record visitors to town to view the sculptures. On a Monday, I could photograph them at leisure with nobody closeby.

Smile because it makes you feel good! 
(Also, a smile is contagious. It makes others feel good, too.)

Thank you for visiting.
