Day 40 and I hadn’t lined up or scheduled anyone to hold my hand. I was getting a little worried. Fortuitously a friend sent me a text as a little joke and I took it as an opportunity to ask her if she was free that evening. She was. I felt guilty. I felt like I was asking her in a way that wasn’t in the spirit of the ritual. Of course that’s not the case. My daily practice is a celebration of the people I have in my life that I can call upon to hold my hand. The friends and the community that I have around me. So I had a little realisation! Again one that when you say it aloud sounds like you should have known already. This year will be filled with meeting people and making the effort to hold hands with a variety of people AND it will be filled with repetition and moments between friends, constant mini celebrations!
