  • My husband and I kiss a LOT!

    I rarely think about how much. But he is sick and I am not so we've been tying NOT to kiss.

    It's probably a hopeless cause, since many illnesses are most contagious before the symptoms show up--and we were kissing then.

    The thing that has struck me about this is the incredible number of times one or the other of us instigates a kiss--and has to draw away. So many missed kisses--and so many kisses shared when he's not sick. I've been amazed by it, struck!
  • Images:

      1. painting by me, called "Bringing Flowers." I thought I had posted it before, but couldn't find it.
      2. self portrait of a kiss in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. (We have hundreds of these all over.)
