"I caught the happy virus last night
When I was out singing beneath the stars.
It is remarkably contagious -
so kiss me." - Hafiz, Persia, 14th-century

Very nice, Ms Bradford. You know that I couldn't resist "lifting" the poem and putting it in the HappyUP!!! blog.
...due credit given, of course.

Oh I love this installation. Yesterday I was walking with hubbi at Laguna Beach and noticed all these statues big and small that were tugged in the least expected places. I am at this little beach city a lot, which also harbors a thriving artist community and just love finding new works of art here and there.

Your photo (Marie's) is wonderful! Such joy expressed there.
And Hafiz, methinks I'm in love ~!❤❤❤❤
Those Hafiz poems are like fine wine...music to my ears.
I hope London is treating you right my friend~! I'll cheers you a pint when I am out tonight.

Sometimes when you freeze the reality of the moment, you still its emotion in time.
And then like a photograph it reminds of the moment, always.
How wonderful this is.

I love this scupture! The expression of fun and freedom is caught beautifully. AND this is the best time to be kissed....when one is feeling a sense of childish joy!
