a picture is worth a thousand words

Words for a Kiss

It looks like the thing couldn’t get better… but it happened, live, suddenly, some tears… A KISS!

He made a mess of it.

For this image I have collected over 750 comments (in Spanish) about the kiss, made by the readers of 20minutos.es, and I counted the words most frequently used. Then I spread those words with sizes proportional to their repetition. They are all, without censorship on my part, the nice and not so nice ones.

I know what happened … it passes through his head and probably thought “now or never”. I know because it happened to all of us  once in our live and still regret not having done so. He did … so thanks Iker for reminding us that we must seize the day.

For me it is a gift, a picture to remember … something simple becomes a symbol, a moment that will stay with us forever.

It remember me the famous photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt, the sailor kissing a nurse at the end of World War II.

Iker said “it has been spontaneous”, but I would better say “it has been creative”.

In this second picture I posted two charts. The first shows 40 most used words evolution in groups of 10 comments, the second  table show all the words with the number of times they appears.
