Polynesian Honi.

The honi is a Polynesian greeting in which two people greet each other by pressing noses and inhaling at the same time. The ancient custom of honi when meeting another included touching foreheads together, inhaling, kissing the other on the cheek or lips, hugging, and then exhaling. This is very special as this represents the exchange of the Ha—the breath of life, and the Mana—spiritual power between two people.

beauty in the dark, during a walk down eighteenth street.

My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.

The Good-Morrow, John Donne
