The Kiss by Auguste Rodin
Hi all –
First – the Major News – The Blog About Beautiful Things has moved from third, to second and now to first place as a Google hit by it’s own name. WOO HOO! Screenshot from the first time I saw it at bottom of this post.
And now The Beautiful Project – Issue No. 29:
I have just had a remarkable experience. As people who know me know, I am working unusually hard right now and sometimes I just keep going until I literally fall asleep. Usually with the lights still on. This happened to me Monday night, extremely early in the morning, and I had the most remarkable dream. I was at some type of outing, in a park, or some place like that, because there was grass and trees and I – and this is unusual – had a very clear idea while I was in the dream. That I could become famous in order to raise myself up high enough so that a girl who was right for me could see me, and so, she would be able to find me.
I had in the past – when I was awake – thought a thing like that before, but never so clearly, as a plan and that it was an exciting idea to do that could work. Now, I am getting to know a lot of girls, me being romantic and outgoing, and having done a lot of chatting online. We are gradually starting to meet in person, though I am not in any romantic relationship at all now. So, it is possible I have found her already, the girl who is or who could become the right girl for me (keeping in mind what I said in Issue No. 20 about me wanting to get married). But, this idea, nevertheless, is an interesting and exciting concept, whether I need to use it or not.
On the theme of my romantic dream, I am doing this issue of The Beautiful Project about something beautiful and romantic, Rodin’s intensely beautiful statue ‘The Kiss’. This statue is particularly romantic because it was originally meant to be the depiction of a couple who were doing an act of infidelity, and were to be placed in the statue ‘The Gates Of Hell’. Fortunately, Rodin decided that there were better things to do with a statue of people kissing, and now the statue ‘The Kiss’ is meant to be an expression of the love, passion, romance, heroism, goodness, beauty, joy, happiness, fun, bliss, pleasure and sex that it should be.
The statue is at the Musée Rodin, housed in the Hôtel Biron (which sounds like Lord Byron, how romantic) in Paris (city of love, *how romantic!!!*), France, and can be seen at the above *passion red* link.
You can buy a copy of the statue and the songs here:
Let me know what you think of the kiss and how you like it! (the statue, not smooching, although you can tell me about your best kisses too, *if you want to!* Hahahahahahaha!)
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.
I wish you the best, with tender, loving care,
