I am tempted to take up the challenge of Project 365  but I guess that would be an ambitious pursuit looking for somebody to photograph everyday and doing interviews in between. I did that two days ago on our trip to Tanay. I talked to their gardener and asked him how they grow the different veggies in their garden. I talked to one of the helpers of the place while taking shots of the flowers in the garden. I asked her if I could take her photo and she shyly smiled at me. She was washing bed sheets at the back of one of the Bahay Kubos lining the place and I asked her if she knew the names of the flowers around. That started our conversation. She asked where we came from and how we learned about Regina RICA so I told her that I longed to see the place since it opened to the public . She casually told me about a cousin who is a cancer patient when I mentioned that I am a survivor.  She was smiling when I left, no longer a shy smile but a smile of  a new-found friend.

A smile can change the world. Today, give a stranger one of your smiles, it might make her day and may be the only sunshine she sees all day 🙂
