“Kiss Me” — Galapagos Islands. Photographer Mike Hibbard explains: “There are so many people who are not loved, not hugged, and not kissed. It is so painful to be lonely and not ‘kissed.’ This brings tears to my eyes and my heart. I am blessed to be loved, and hugged, and kissed. Let’s please give our love, hugs, and kisses to those in need.”
