On one of my walks I was looking down at the sea and realised how clear it was . This my friends is the mediterranean sea. Following is a poetic expression my friend Laetitia pointed out and since it is beautiful I wanted to share it.

A smile costs nothing, but gives a lot.

It enriches those who receive it without making poorer those who give it.

A smile takes only a moment, but the memory of it can last forever.

No one is so rich, or so mighty, that they can get a long without a smile.

And no one is so poor that they cannot be made richer by a smile.

A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business and is the

counter sign of friendship.

A smile brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the

sad and is nature's best cure for trouble

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen
for it is of no value to anyone until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give a smile so give them one of yours as no one needs a smile so much as he who has no more of his own to give.

Dina, Thanks for the welcome and for visiting Asheville DP. I absolutely love your post today, the photo and the poem. I take lots of photos of the ground like this and I really enjoy exploring textures in my photos.
