    And it's not always just about kissing two lips... and two lips kissing. It's about kissing life. Grabbing life passionately. Each and every moment. And to kiss it with all your heart. And with both hands. Fully embraced. "A kiss is something you need both hands for." Mark Twain The kiss... Always remember the kiss. Photograph: The Kiss, 1945, New York Times Square Photograph Credits: Alfred Eisenstaedt www.MyBeautifulWords.com Encouraging Courage. Encouraging You.
