An Ode to Newborn Grins

Calling it a smile does not do it justice. All human beings smile – at a joke, to be polite, upon seeing a friend. You don’t just turn up the corners of your mouth. Eyes open wide, your eyebrows jump as if to leap above your head. Dimples appear in your chubby cheeks, like the […]
