It does not have to be one way or another. Do we operate from feelings of the heart or thoughts of the mind? Who is it we seek, we long for, we need? Maybe all three. Does a longing to be heard outweigh a simple touch. Is it possible to have it all and to feel full, overwhelmed?
The grand gestures of life are the ones most remembered, when this is the beginning, one has to think it will continue and when it does not, there is trouble, uncertainties and doubt about the whole beginning. What is a grand gesture anyway? A surprise hello, a flower left, a long kiss goodbye.
