Smiles That Speak a Universal Language
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Don Perlyn
There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all.” These orphan novice boys at monastery in Bagan, Myamar were overjoyed to receive and look at the children’s book that my wife wrote. I gave a book to one boy who showed it to another and, before I knew it, the boys were gathering and hanging over each other to get a glimpse of the illustrations that told the story. Their delight and expressions of joy are captured in this spontaneous moment!
