“The Kiss” by Chinese artist Xu Hongfei’s from his collection “Chubby Women” – street exhibition in Berlin – September 2015

As cloud for this post, I have chosen the formal Japanese violist Ikuko Kawai version of “El Choclo” (Kiss Of Fire). Ikuko is born in 1968 and performed in New York at her first Carnegie Hall concert at Zankel Hall in 2008. She has performed internationally, including invitational appearances with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. “El Choclo” (Spanish: meaning “The Corn Cob”) is a popular song written by Ángel Villoldo, an Argentine musician, but was introduced as “Kiss of Fire” by Ray Conniff with his orchestra and chorus for the album “Rhapsody in Love” (1962).

    • Glad you got it … was back on Wednesday late afternoon. Had a brilliant time … the weather was fantastic the last 5 days, but it wasn’t neither really bad in the beginning. Met up with friends, did serious shopping and enjoyed loads of good food and wine. *smile WeekendHugs.

    • Yes, that gutter-man in Bratislava – first I thought it was a real man. The kiss is a fantastic piece of art. The artist has now done a couple more with the skinny man and the chubby woman, just beautiful. Thank you!
