Smile

As mentioned in a comment about Charlie Chaplin, he wrote a famous song. Actually Chaplin wrote the music and the words were added later by another writer, who used Chaplin as his inspiration. Here are the words:

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying

Kingfisher 2

About a year ago I saw a kingfisher at the Mariko River and I tried to take a photo but it flew away just as I clicked. So I posted this wonderful photo of a kingfisher from the net.

Today I saw another kingfisher (or was it the same one?) and I was again unsuccessful in taking a photo. So here is another photo of my favourite bird. BTW do you know that kingfishers cannot walk?
