Erin helps run a camp on beautiful Vashon Island, not far from Seattle. Part of her job involves storytelling, and you can tell she’s born to it: She has an amazingly expressive face.

Not only is her smize on point, this woman has a scheming face that’s just the best.

No getting on her bad side, right?

Working with Erin and watching her beautiful expressions made me think about how little most of us — including me! — use our faces from day to day. We have a narrow range of expression from polite smiles to mild frowns to the rare guffaw. But when was the last time you made a big silly face in public without being embarrassed? When was the last time you let a good day shine out through a joyful smile as you walked the streets of your neighborhood?

What would happen if we all let go and let more of our emotions out in our expressions?
