Excuse Me While I Kiss the Sky

Nothing says I (only pretend to) love you like the air kiss

It is as timeless as a Rumi poem about the ongoing search for God's kiss. While most kisses are shared in private between two people, the blown kiss is a decidedly public performance to be shared and savored. Rodin's The Kiss may be the world's most popular sculpture. But our living room mantles show what we really love: dimpled porcelain cherubs, sexless and loving, with hands springing from their lips.
