Someone said to me, “You know Mendel Bluming, you don’t need to smile anymore! No one can tell behind that mask if you are smiling or not!”
He brought a smile to my face 🙂 In truth of course you can tell if another is smiling, from their eyes!
You see, there is that superficial smile that we are all too familiar with and then there is a smile that is an expression of deep clarity and contentment. A genuine feeling of happiness from knowing that you stand for something more permanent than the shifting sands and viruses of our time.
We will persevere despite all the vicissitudes we see around us. That smile may be hidden behind a mask but it is very much present!
Mendel (Menachem) Bluming
