Many years ago, I loved watching America’s Next Top Model. It was one of the “reality” shows that I loved to catch. Perhaps in part because I love photography and I love mixing up styles. What I really loved about the show was the smizing aspect. What is smizing? It’s when you smile with your eyes. I learned how to do it well. It helps draw people in. Captures moment.
Fast forward to covid-19 times. We are all going around wearing masks. Part of our being is covered and inaccessible to conversation partners. Here is where smizing comes in. We now take photos- some of us that is- wearing masks. As we take group photos I urge all to smize and bring it home.
Besides smizing, wearing these masks makes us try to express ourselves more overtly. Use our hands. Use our eyes. Use our words clearly. So practice your smizing

SMiLes i have the Opposite Problem Having to Wear Shades
as i was always Noted for Having Smiling ‘Irish’ Eyes; Yes literally
only Twice Removed from that Country With an Irish Catholic Priest
Grandfather that gave it up so i could eventually exist too; but anyway
once Smiling eyes have Left due to whatever Reasons come for that there
is Other Facial Expressions and After that Goes away for Whatever Reason
There is Joyful
The Gratitude for
Life Is often Felt by
Others Expressed as
Positive Energy in the Room;
Oh My God the Energy is Amazing
In Positivity in Group Dance but even
A Solitary Dance Will Take away the Masked
Blues of Humans without A Face and Arms allowed to Hug;
online at Least and i am
Surely Happy that i recorded
Literally Thousands of Joyous Smiles
of Dance with myself and many other
Socially Close Connecting Dancing Humans
in 6 Years and 9 Months of Public Dance For True i couldn’t see my
Eyes through Shades but the Eyes around me surely Reflect Still
Eyes of Joy;
that We Will
Possibly Be Able
to Buy At Walmart alone..:)
Don’t worry about the wrinkles.
I’ve watched that show – I like the fact that it emphasized that the camera doesn’t fall in love with a model just because she’s gorgeous.
Wow!I Always learn something new from your posts.Will definitely practice Smizing.
That picture is breathtaking.Do you happen to live there?
