365 Days, Day 290

A single smile is a cure for anything. It penetrates the human heart, causing it to beat faster. A single smile means warmth, satisfaction, happiness and most of all, it means life. People smiling know and understand they have something worth living for (Andriana Kelisakieva)

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, heard or even touched. They must be felt with the heart (Helen Keller)

My brain and my heart are my temples. My true religion is kindness (Dalai Lama)

“Your grandfather is a cyborg!”

An apt title for a B grade sci-fi movie or a curse Monty-Python-mode: in the ilk of: “Your mother was an ‘amster and your father smelled of elderberries!”?

No, this was the delighted exclamation of Gina when she heard that Roarke’s granddad had had a pacemaker fitted.

Granddad is quite the icon amongst his grandchildren right now, having futuristic body parts: part-man, part robot. Go granddad!

That will put a smile on his face and in his heart. Little acts of kindness (like Roarke and Gina popping in to see granddad in hospital last night, because he couldn’t make their farewell dinner, just to say goodbye before they embark on their new journey) – are felt with the (cyborg) heart.
