Excerpt from book chapter In Search of Mother:
"...The day I found her, I came across a long shipping box teetering off the side of a recycling bin. Instinctively, I responded by hurrying to prevent this box from falling to the ground.

Nose Kisses! [Inspired by my daughter]
Get face to face with another person you love. Look them in the eyes. While smiling put the tip of your nose to their nose and move your head side to side.
You may have to hold their head to accomplish this successfully. Pull away quickly and in a high pitched voice say, "nose kisses!" drawing out each word a bit.
Please note: Smiling and laughter may result.
