One Smile Is All It Takes
Smiles can travel beyond the tangible distance of terrain. They transcend culture, race, ethnicity, and nationality. I saw this man on a beach in Kanagawa. He was playing a small cymbal at a Bon Odori festival. It was easy to see his love for the music and the dance. Although it was night, his smile parted the darkness and filled the air with an electrifying feeling of celebration.
