“Whether staged for the camera, involuntary or spontaneous, deceitful or licentious, friendly or wicked, rude or polite – begins with an instantaneous chemical reaction in the human brain.”
What is this referring to?
According to author Angus Trumble?
As written about in his book, A Brief History Of The Smile.
Jarod Kintz, self published author put it this way.
“Smiling is the way the soul says hello.
Obviously, a frown means goodbye.
Is there a word halfway between hello and goodbye?”
Certainly something to think about.
If there is a word or a place between hello and goodbye.
Is that where one lives for years on end?
Is that the place where one finds contentment?
Is that the place we find our place in this world?
Is that the place where “from afar” seems almost bearable?
There are no smiles at goodbye.
That is why I never use that word.
“Goodbye” is a word of verbalized or written permanent separation.
I prefer to use the word “until”.
Until we meet again.
Until a son or daughter arrives safely home from war.
Until the storm is over.
Until God answers the prayers of my heart.
Until is a word that brings a smile.
Until is a word of hope.
