smiles

This has been, in a word, a happy week.
When I am happy, rested, content,
I tend to smile a lot. Without really being conscious of it.
What has been fun this week,
is the surprise of returned smiles.
Seriously.
I have had so many people smile at me--returning my content expression...it has been so sweet.
and dear.
and lovely.

I think the zen timers would make you smile also. They use a gentle chiming mechanism. I have seen them in alarm clocks and door chimes. Most can be set to a particular time...useful for meditation. Just google zen timer time or zen chime...there are many places that sell them.

I think a smile is really infectious. It's like the line of a chant or song that gets people humming and the chant becomes like a fugue in the city.
By the way I came across a little reference that might interest you - from the Seekers Church website - someone has written a book about pottery and likens it to steps in the spiritual life.
