“You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply as time goes by.” — Herman Hupfeld
Day 26 is International Kissing Day! What is there to say? Here’s a brief history from the Lillith e-zine:
“Anthropologists really don’t know much about the early history of kissing. It is presumed that it happened as part of courtship and sexual foreplay, and therefore is rather instinctive (many animals also kiss, lick and nuzzle each other), but it was (for whatever reason) rarely depicted in art or writing. Artists/writers may have considered kissing too sexual or private to share publicly.
“Kissing allows prospective mates to taste each other’s pheromones for biological compatibility. It is a much stronger chemical reaction than merely sniffing each other. Humans also judge potential mates on the quality of the kiss as a sign of a potential lover’s personality and ability to commit.”
I found love late in life, and the song, “It’s in His Kiss”, became reality when I first kissed Lynn. I just knew, and have been enjoying those sweet lips for 11 years now.
But we are both affection bugs, so our fur babies and loved ones get bussed quite a bit too.
I say, why stop at a day? Take the week to give additional smooches to those you love. We need some positive, loving energy to permeate our world.
