kisses are a better fate
~ e.e. cummings
Oh indeed… A funny one-word prompt yet NOT if you consider the value of this lovely 4-letter word. Who wouldn’t prefer to come away kissed more than to walk away wise?!
Always kiss your children goodnight, even if they’re already asleep. [H. Jackson Brown]
I love that one. I love the memories it brings flooding into me of childhood and parenthood alike. It sets off a long, long train of recollections and rememberings which somehow invade my face and make me grin like a bit of a fool.
Kisses aren’t much in abundance in my Life at Present. I don’t mind this so much as I mind the absence of hugs. Hugs are easier to obtain, even for a solitary soul like me. [BEsides, Gracie kisses are ALWAYS available, well, almost always…] And for anyone who knows, a Gracie kiss is a magically surprising JOY.
Harvey Fierstein said, A child’s kiss is magic. Why else would they be so stingy with them?
Makes me pause and consider whether that is true, the stingy part… I don’t know that it was with Timmy, but definitely it seemed so when he and I were thousands of miles apart.
Perhaps I am someone who has adapted to a more kiss-less Life?!
I love you, Currie
