As the preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas take place – I am reminded of the 2022 seasonal days, when I decided to read Louisa May Alcott’s classical novel entitled: “Little Women.” I mention this as normally I would watch the film yearly. Upon reading the novel as well as a few other well-loved classics. I wrote upon the great need to create and preserve the love of reading and reading for pleasure. Where I consider reading classic novels that are a part of the traditional literary canon a luxury, especially as social-political issues, the crisis of the World that affect human populations take precedence, pending upon what one places value upon. And even if one truly cares about the human condition or not?

In-keeping with these views: additional thoughts such as the development of human character, character traits, literacy and vocabulary came to mind. As per the latter, I began reading another classic by Jane Austen entitled: “Sense and Sensibility.” I decided to share a few thoughts for the writing prompt: “In one kiss, you’ll know all I haven’t said” ~ Pablo Nureda. Austen’s character Marianne describes male beauty: “His manly beauty and more than common gracefulness were instantly the theme of general admiration” (Austen, 2008, p. 44). Of Willoughby’s company the reader becomes intertwined within her stream of consciousness: “His society became gradually her most exquisite enjoyment. They read, they talked, they sang together; his musical talents were considerable, and read with all sensibility and spirit” (2008, p. 50).

The above quotes from Austen’s novel are beautifully linked to Pablo Nuredas’ where we can confess that truly the physicality of human expression is irreplaceable. These thoughts are also linked to words I have previously shared such as: If eyes could truly speak? To further contend that after writing hundreds, thousands, millions and billions of words, one kiss, a true love’s kiss can describe all.

It is with these thoughts I wish all that celebrate the seasonal joys of American Thanksgiving and upcoming days leading to Christmas many thoughts of love, as to acquire the love of human affections are the most beautiful joys of the season (s) and life’s pleasures, to share all-forms of spirited emotions.

Notes: These thoughts were originally hand-written on November 21st 2022.

With Love & Kindness!🇺🇸
