Kiss kiss!

Love passionate statues. How in the world do you create a grabbing stance with marble? I’ve always loved Michael Angelo’s quote about creating sculptures is just about the figure already being there, one just has to chip away to let it out. Fabulous.

A word about kissing….there is never enough. ‘Loved it when I was an anxious, sweaty-palmed teen on my doorstep at curfew and love it now that I’m a 38 yr-old mother of two active kids with a  vida loca. It’s one of life’s great gifts! PH and I used to take funny self-portraits of ourselves locked in an embrace when we were dating—those photo opps don’t come as often now, but we did have a nice moment last summer on Whidbey Island–I keep this in my planner and look at it when I’m mad at him..a rare occurrence, fortunately.  ;)

I think many define passionate kisses as this kind of thing when we’re young…but as I grow older it seems to be more the image after it.

My obsession with Mac Russian red lipstick is an interesting obstacle when I’m trolling for kisses…not exactly easy to get off the skin, or clothes, for that matter! It is, however, a useful tool for writing love notes on a mirror…a nice surprise when you’re blurry-eyed and wandering into the loo to wash the sleep from your face.

    Special MPG kisses (and hugs) to you today, Lara.
    Us, ‘Euros’ usually kiss, more than hug as a greating or farewell. I was explaining that to someone, just the other day, funny.
    Can’t help but love Le Metro kissing photo, that ROCKS.
    Any great Barn House finds?
    Lulu.
