My daily practice is forcing me in many ways to catch up with people, which is an amazingly happy accident. Day 11 and 12 were both friends; one who I see very often and one I see now and again as she lives in London. Both have a comfort and a familiarity for me that is very special and it is great to have created an opportunity that allows me to appreciate that. I feel held in their presence. They are two of the many friends who have inspired me to engage in my 2012 task. Sitting in a bar holding their hands feels easy. I am aware of it. It feels playful and poignant. I can’t help but notice the differences from person to person. The quality of their hand holding somehow seems to reflect their personality.
