who can turn the world on with her smile?

To smile is not to smile only for yourself; the world will change because of your smile. Thich Nhat Hahn


You'll enjoy what you do mostly because you resolve to enjoy it. ... You'll receive invitations and other nifty perks as people respond to your smile. (Gemini, Oct. 18)


I want to be famous to shuffling men
who smile while crossing streets,
famous to sticky children in grocery lines,
as the one who smiled back.
