From the symphony of car honks and thumbs-ups from smiling drivers, to pedestrian passersby who picked up the signs and joined in enthusiastically, Shiv's full-blast smile dance on the median and encouraging tips before-hand on how to get over feeling shy, Spoorthy spreading smiles inside the mall, :) conversations across lanes with drivers saying, "People don't do this anymore!", Prahallad literally "spreading" the smile with his fingerprints :), while two cops in police cars encouraged him on, Audrey exuberantly cheering people on to "have a beautiful day!" and "you have a great smile!," as she channeled Bermuda's Mr. Happy Man, Bradley gifting French toast to the homeless before he came(!) to spread smiles and smilingly reminding us all with his "you are loved" poster, Prakash and Shruti driving all the way from their community garden day across the Bay to spread smiles with us and gifting us fresh local produce from the farm, Deepa's stunning "65 smiles per hour minimum" font, and dancing on on the median towards the end as she stepped it up, Mahendra Uncle sharing delighted "car talk" stories as we made signs, and so much more in so many directions -- what a day! :)

More reflections to follow, and in the meantime, here's some shining photos from the experience:
