For National Kissing Day

For National Kissing Day

Okay, my second black-and-white-photography-laden, romantic post in a row, but so be it. This is absolutely adorable.  I believe it was originally a jeans commercial, but look what they created:  They paired up a bunch of strangers and asked them to kiss.  I dare you not to get irresistible little chills before the end:

I’ll go go back to this video whenever I write characters who are falling for each other.  Because there is nothing like that moment.  And let’s face it: You only get so many of these in your life.

In Stephen King’s Christine, he described it as that roller coaster, “the one that’s the best ride, the one they really only let you take once.”

I can say I was allowed on that coaster more than once.  But you only get so many.

Brief observation for the day:

I kiss my husband goodbye as he leaves for work, and I think,

“Bye, person whose hand I want to hold when I die!”

That’s it, isn’t it? That’s how you know. Even if you’ve been in love with too many, or wish you were in love with more … If you are abjectly lucky enough, there is one person in the world where, even if you died, it would be all right, as long as he were there. As long as he held your hand.  (… Or was waiting for you?)

There’s that One True Thing. The one true sentence that Hemingway said we should write about:  The person you should spend your life with is the one you know you will call out to the day you die.

I wish that one person upon everyone.
