human contact

human contact less is more

I was sitting on my balcony this past week having
My coffee and nibbling at an orange. I do this most
Mornings [ yes, I admit, I am very lucky ]

During this time, I watched two young men
greet each other.

Their meeting caught me to by surprise.
The two did not shake hands but hand punched each
Other. [ Gosh I hope I got that right, the hand punching thing.
You know where people acknowledge someone by putting their
Knuckles to knuckles ]

I have seen this before but never really contemplated this
action.

Interesting how gestures have changed over the year and yet
remain the same.

In my world a firm handshake is appropriate. If I am familiar
With the other party this turns into a hug.

This knuckle to knuckle communication made me
realize that the more things change, the more
they remain the same.

Human contact, in whatever form is very
important.

Sure it is great to host a business meeting online.
using say, zoom or one of the other online meeting
programs.This form of communication saves time, money and energy.

But that human contact, that knuckle to knuckle is
so important. It lifts me up, makes me feel part of the whole.

It gives me MORE of a feeling of
belonging.
