While on a bus ride there was a couple sitting across from us who were holding hands. I liked how they were holding hands. There was no tightly locked grip but had a relaxed and comfortable touch. Their touch is what made it special as I felt they were saying to each other, “Even after many years, I’m glad we have this closeness. I am yours.”

Insightful - your focus upon the hands. Holding hands can mean so much: you are my friend; I want to comfort you; I remember when. . .; I love you. This, as you say, is a soft gentle holding - and holding from years of care and concern. May we all remember to keep hold of our friends and loved ones.
Thank you Monte for the meditation. You are my brother, forever.
