‘Join Me’



Ceramic plate.


‘Quickly write this down before I forget all of these very important things I need to say! “I’m going to make the effort to really look around and really appreciate what is going on all around me, to walk down the street and look right into the face of the man walking towards me, and send out a broad smile, I know I will be disappointed time and time again when all I get back in return is only a blank stare. But occasionally I know I will be rewarded so generously with a super wide smile in return and the person will look back as if to say “Oh I see that you are one of us” A smiler, a giver of grins not scowls… Don’t ever give up smiling. Smile forever and on your very last day look at death and smile.’
