The song S-M-I-L-E is all about gratitude. In order to rework the lyrics of it together with our girls at Residence@St George’s, we decided to think about who we are thankful for and what thankfulness means to us.
Each of us then wrote our reflections down as little notes (not more than two or three sentences). Finally, as a group, we chose two of the most relatable ones that could be worked into the new lyrics.
This exercise taught us that a short, simple and moving note is all that is needed to begin connecting and creating.
