Holding hands

“Holding hands may seem like an innocent gesture, but it shows more than a simple interlocking of fingers.  Your hands are one of the most essential parts of your body: you build with them, feed with them, hold with them, touch with them, fight with them; they are the tools of the human body. To take a hold of another’s hand is to break from living individually. It is to link yourself to another being. To momentarily entwine your life with another’s, to promise, for a moment, that you need not face the world alone.  More simple, more aesthetically naïve than other forms of affection, the act of holding hands is often trivialized in its true implications.” 

To me holding hands is the most intimate gesture you can give to someone.  It’s so simple and yet so symbolic.  When you hold my hand it’s like saying to me, “We’re in this together” or “I’m here for you.” You intertwine my fingers with yours and we can do anything. I can conquer the world with one hand as long as you’re holding the other right?
