  3. If no-one mentioned they were strangers, I wouldn’t have guessed while they were kissing! But their shyness at first gives it all away and makes it so much bigger than it actually is. You can’t fail to smile watching this! 🙂 And perhaps I should give you some of these David xxx Seems appropriate for the post! 😆

  4. Yep, kissing, hearts touching… 🙂 Funny how everything changes when we allow ourselves to just be close. And I’m laughing too at one of the previous comments above. Haha!

  7. Loved it – and the romantic in me ends this story with each of these couples falling in love and living happily ever after. Right? Good.

    • The “key to the great mystery of life and progress” was the ability of men and women to fashion a mental or material picture and let his or her entire world, sentiments, and vision of every other living thing be affected by it. Even the most humble image held in the hand or in the mind was never silent. Like the tones of music, it could speak to the heart in a way that words could not. All of the “Daguerreotypes, Ambrotypes, Photographs and Electrotypes, good and bad, [that] now adorn or disfigure all our dwellings,” Douglass said, could allow for progress through the mental pictures that they conjured. He went on to describe “the whole soul of man,” when “rightly viewed,” as “a sort of picture gallery[,] a grand panorama,” contrasting the sweep of life with the potential for progress in every moment.

  8. Just saw this yesterday and loved it. I think it speaks to our innate desire to connect with others. And like Mimi, I found myself cheering for a footnote that indicated that at least one of he couples rode off into the sunset together….

  9. i found this very sweet and beautiful, they were shy and nervous and tender, like middle school students, cautiously approaching each other at their first dance. the smiles, the hugs, the light in their eyes, the joy their touch brought to each other, was wonderful.

  10. Loved it. Both cringe-worthy and yet beautiful all in one! MJ

  11. I loved this! The awkward, strangeness transformed by the intimacy of kissing (the most intimate activity shared by two people, in my opinion). I imagined some of them falling in love, or at least getting a cup of coffee after.

  16. I’m in a place today where this made me weep. There were no strangers in the middle of it. And unless they put the walls back up, no strangers afterward either.
    I’m stealing this. I have to.
