Mmwahh! Happy Kissing Day
Sending out the love and kisses to you all for #InternationalKissingDay
International Kissing Day is also known as World Kissing Day as you would guess it is celebrated in many different countries. Little is known of when it first started but it is believed to have been right here in the UK in the 19th Century. To find out more about the day visit Holidays Calendar by clicking HERE.
Seal Mother Cover Reveal
What better way to celebrate #InternationalKissingDay than by sharing a Cover Reveal for the beautiful folktale of the Selkie Seal Mother. The actual reveal will be around 9pm GMT UK this evening over on Facebook but I will be sure to share it here immediately after.
Poetry & Kissing
There must be millions of poems that deal with the subject of kissing and love. However, my favourite of all has to be Love’s Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley. Click the image to enlarge (opens in a new window)
Love’s Philosophy by Percy Bysshe Shelley
The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
Why not I with thine?—
See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?
