Among the many lessons I learnt from Dave, was this experience in teaching a blind child to smile.
One day, I was photographing him and just as I was about to snap the photo, I asked him to smile but he showed no response. He stood there like a rock with his ears on the alert. I said, “Come on Dave, smile.”
After a pensive moment, he asked quietly, “What does smile mean? What do I have to do?” I was shocked for a moment. How could I explain what a smile is to a blind child? It is something we learn automatically through observation.
I said very foolishly, “Smile, is like laughing.”
Live this moment, as if it were your last moment. Live with purpose and die happily exhausted knowing that you used every bit of your talent to serve life fully. Live your soul mission - the universe will conspire with you to move you from vision to mission.
