Give me your best smile!  Seriously, I want to see it. , and I might include it on a special musical slide show.

As many of you know I moonlight as a musician and song writer. I have a new album and one of the tracks, Holy Smile, is a celebration of friendly facial expressions. Mountain historian Bob Pate once told me that a smile is the window to a person's soul.

I believe that. Laughter and a sparkling smile can work wonders when the sky is full of clouds.

Please send me your best smiles. I prefer a pixel minimum of 1200. We want this slideshow to look really good. These don’t have to be all wide and pearly white grins. Modest smiles will be accepted as well. A few pensive looks might also work as a show of contrast.

or e-mail your favorite smile images to me at

I will select about 50 images for the project. We will also choose a best overall smile winner. That person will receive a copy of my new CD "Simple Beauty."

Spread the news.  Tell your friends about this. Thanks!
