Loughborough Think Smink at “SM in KY” Launch Party, March 30th 2001
Sminky is a self formed theology, a mutual mind set and self evolving social paradigm that emanated from the holistic, psychological and insightful views, theories and mental notes on life that our Uncle Jack and Aunt Mary have provided us with over the years.

As we continue to grow and mature, we become increasingly aware that all of nature is interdependent, that there is an ecological system that governs nature, including society. Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greater success, and understand that interdependence is a higher value than independence. 

KnockerSMINK, PrehistoricSMINK & SarkySMINK  Console The Log.One of the immensely valuable aspects of any self-evident paradigm is that it is valid, applicable and can be manifested in a wide
variety of circumstances. Thinking Smink is a night AND day commodity

Our paradigms are the source of our attitudes and behaviours and we cannot act with
integrity outside of them. Sincere, clearheaded people "see" things differently, each looking through the unique lens of experience. The Sminky theology promotes the awareness of our own perceptions and that the lens we look at life through shapes how we interpret the world. Through communication, honesty and friendship, this lens can be kept in focus by the support and help of those around you; those that know.

When faced with an impenetrable situation or dilemma in life, thinking Smink is the ability to think in a completely different way about the same thing. There's always another answer, always another route. You just need others to help you "see" it. As old Mr Einstein once said, Have a Good ‘un!"the significant problems we face in life cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.

A fellow Sminker will strive to lift you to another plane to be able to think diversely and solve whatever problem lies before you. Day in - day out. It's the way we live. Safety in numbers in an otherwise crazy world!
