Your Kiss Is On My List

The Kiss, Gustav Klimt “It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this 
It’s centrifugal motion
It’s perpetual bliss
It’s that pivotal moment
This kiss, this kiss (it’s unstoppable)“
This Kiss, Faith Hill

What’s in a kiss? More than touching lips, chemistry and feel good vibes, these artists (whom I’ve featured here) have immortalized the kiss visually and through music, the language of love.

The image of The Kiss (above) was taken from the Atelier des Lumieres digital exhibition, Gustav Klimt and Hundertwasser, in Paris in 2018. The original painting is in the Austrian Gallery Museum of the Belvedere Palace in Vienna.

Artist Unknown, Bologna, Italy ”Because your kiss, your kiss is on my lips
Because your kiss, your kiss I can’t resist
Because your kiss is what I miss
When I turn on the lights”
Your Kiss is on my List, Daryl Hall & John Oates

Kissing the War Goodbye, Victor Jorgensen  “I wanna kiss a girl 
I wanna hold her tight
Maybe make a little magic in the moonlight”
Kiss a Girl, Keith Urban

Paris in Autumn 2018

Remember the song, I love Paris? 
“I love Paris in the springtime
I love Paris in the fall I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles I love Paris every moment Every moment of the year.”

Found myself in Paris in early November with someone who has never been to Paris. How wonderful it is to see Paris from fresh eyes. I had so much to show her but since she only had 36 hours in town, it was a short and sweet visit. She wanted to see the Tour Eiffel, first and foremost, so we went up to La Terrasse at Galeries Lafayette Haussman for her first glimpse of the tower.
And lucky for us, the much awaited Christmas tree at Galeries Lafayette was up. This year the tree is right side up. Last year's tree was candy themed and was upside down. At the Lafayette Café on the sixth floor, a window seat affords views of the Tour Eiffel and the back of the Opera Garnier. This is a good spot for scanning the Parisian skyline while indulging on a piece of cake.
