For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.
I can't say I've kissed any authors' pictures, but I'm grateful for the authors who from my earliest reading years have filled me with wonder--Alcott, Welty, Tracy Chevalier, Valerie Martin, and too many more to list. Thank you, thank you, all!
No actual kissing for me, but I wrote a fan letter once. I'm certainly very grateful to those authors who can pull me away from my real-world problems and fill my head with adventure and delight! :-)
I don't know about the kissing but I've certainly hugged books before, or simply held them in my lap after I was done and luxuriated for a moment in the joy they brought me.
I sometimes pull a favorite book from the shelf and stroke the cover then lay it on my desk for inspiration. There is something about the look and touch of a well-loved book takes my mind to a more creative place.
