There’s Always Time

Until. . .

 

I am thankful for the introduction of the concept of smile landmarks that are a part of our world if we choose to “see” them.  



While I am not sure of the exact date when I first learned of them, I do remember that it was Alexandra Ron and Alexandra Seigel who first mentioned them in a post or comment and it has "stuck" with me.

 

Most of us know we can learn much from ActiveRain posts but there is "gold" to be also found in the comments in a different way than a post. Although I admit I don’t always have time to read each and every comment on other posts, the insights into the thoughts of members you can glean is incredible to say the least. 



And it was in a post earlier this month by Kathy Streib where she explored whimsy that reminded me of Alexandra’s use of that word as well as smile landmarks.  Both are crucial to experiencing and enjoying life.  



Just a thought today from the always-growing list of pondering material that have long been in “draft” and today seems to be the ideal time to acknowledge the specialness that exists out there and all around us when we are and stay aware.

I too appreciate the expression and smile landmarks are good to note. The more we focus on the smiles, the more we attract. Whimsy is also a wonderful word. Not sure who the young man is, but he, and the scene behind him, are both smile landmarks. Good choice.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - thankfully my subscription to canstockphoto.com continues to provide smile landmarks and whimsy since my photography skills are, to say the least, challenged.  I like the image as well.

Hi Michael:

I don't recall having heard about smile landmarks before, but there are certainly many of them around us...all we have to do is watch for them, and enjoy. This is a great image to illustrate this!

Jeff Dowler, CRS - "smile landmarks" are certainly evident throughout much of our daily lives and help each day become a bit brighter.

Roy Kelley - as I write this comment, it's a bit overcast and a report report said we might see a trace of some rain this evening.  Whatever the weather you may experience this weekend, I wish you a pleasant time.

Good Sunday morning, Michael.

We have a sunny morning in Maryland. Chef Dolores just harvested some tomatoes from the plants in our home garden.

Roy Kelley - it remains a bit overcast this morning in Southern California.  I am looking forward to a good breakfast.  Freshly grown tomatoes help make any meal a bit more appetizing in my opinion.

Sharon Tara - maybe an invitation to giggle-fest is on its way to you as your grandchildren provide a dose of laughter each time you see them.

Endre Barath, Jr. - there is certainly a part of my life that includes the people I have met on ActiveRain.  In real life and virtually through their posts, comments along with questions/answers.

I believe this post is a Smile Landmark for me today.  Any combined wisdom of yours, Kathy's and Alexandra's is something in which to pay attention.  Thank you for bringing it all together.
