It’s Valentine’s Day. Love and lust are warming the air with lilts of dark chocolate and whispers of expensive champagne. Can kissing be very far behind? Today is the launch day of the Canada Kiss Map, an inspired creation of writer, creative process facilitator, and my friend, Chris Fraser.
As big brilliant ideas often begin, this one started small in her home town of Toronto. With her love of story and words as the seed, Chris set out to create a garden for lovers across the city to map and share in words and photos their first kisses, their best kisses, and, with bittersweetness, their farewell kisses. The project was embraced wholeheartedly by Toronto’s lovers and lip service proved to be rampant from Etobicoke to Scarborough.
The Canada Kiss Map is like GPS for lovers: nationwide access to the best spots north of the 49th Parallel for a passionate French kiss or a shy and tentative peck on the cheek. My kissing spot? First date, blues dancing at Swan’s Brew Pub in Victoria. The music was hot, the dance was sensual. At the end of a song our lips met. Ah, scintillating.
