    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...

    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...

    I only hold hands with the man I love.

    Before we met I hardly let anyone touch me because I found human contact just overwhelming some reason. After we began to be come very close friends I would allow him to hold my hand. It was wonderful. I would think about all the things people to with their hands and it felt...

    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...

    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...

    Instinct

    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...

    Of All Things...

    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.
