They see life the way we all should - positive, fun, curious, intriguing, wonderful and essentially happy. Getting them to smile is easy; most already are.
Makes one wonder. When do most of us lose our innocence? Maybe some of us haven't? I've been told I'm childlike (though not childish). I take that as a compliment.
Life is way too short to be negative. Doesn't the Bible exhort us to be like little children?
I was today. And it made my day.

Happiness is getting a Hanukah food delivery to your door.
A wonderful community project put on by the Bronx Jewish Council to low income and isolated senior citizens. This was my assignment this morning as I followed a mother-daughter team who just happened to make a delivery in my building to one of my neighbors!
Serving the needs of others. What a better place this would be if we all thought this way!

I was told there were body parts strewn across the roadway - a grisly site for sure. But there's a lesson here. Life isn't guaranteed to anyone and for some it's shorter than they ever could've thought.
And finally - I was supposed to go running this morning at the exact time this took place. Was I not supposed to be there?
I'll never know.

As a photographer, there are photos I think are mediocre but others fawn over. This is one of them.
Is it the fog, the leading lines or the caption I posted with it: "Into the fog I ran. Just another organic form in the test of time."
Maybe this photo awakens that Wizard of Oz archetype re: the yellow brick road. Maybe it stimulates that journey all of us take just living our lives? Maybe the wanderlust that many of us have - that walk we are curious to take that leads us into the unknown?
Whatever it is, I'm glad I was able to touch the souls of others, for whatever reason(s).
