    I think one of the things I look forward to the most would be hand holding. It just seems like something I would enjoy and it really shows the biggest of bonds in the smallest of ways.

    With the slightest unintentional brush of her delicate fingers across the back of my cold hand, fingers warm and awake to a mind of their own, sliding into our embrace, interlocking with their life partners and finding that delicate symmetrical exchange of touch. I see old...

    The Cousin Problem

    A couple of days ago I agreed to help two friends look after their cousins for the day. What I didn't realise was that these two cousins were 1 year olds. I coped well though I think. The best part of the day however was when we were walking back from the corner shop. We'd...

    I Love It But.....

     has anyone ever wondered why holding hands is the thing to do with the person you love. I guess its my tendency to over analyze good simple things but I've kinda always wondered that. Why the gesture used by a mother to get her child safely across the street is sued between...

    Yeah! I Think She Does Too!

    Our first meeting was somewhat awkward. An eleven hour flight, across 7 time zones, and hardly a wink of sleep. Old school suitcase stuffed to bulging in one hand, carry-on bag half-way slipping down the opposite shoulder. Signs in a language I don't understand, and passing...

    Prelude to a Kiss

    Other than a kiss it is the single gesture that can truly convey a multitude of feelings. It can be a simple gesture of warmth. It can be fun and goofy. It can be a prelude to a spontaneous dance in the aisle of a store.  It can show love, it can hint of things to come; of...

    Intimate Gesture

    Poppa and I hold hands a lot more than we kiss. I don't know what this means. I will find myself holding Poppa's hand and not remember when it happened, I only notice when I need my hand for something. I don't know who reached for who first. We hold hands in bed and we...

    2010 when I got together with my man, he asked if he could hold my hand as we walked to his Aunts house to meet her. It was so cute and I cherish that moment forever.
