When it becomes the norm and what happens when you forget.

I have been absent from my blog for a while now. Not a conscious decision but just that life has happened to get in the way of reflecting upon my task. Below is a photograph from each of the hand holding. You may notice that day 56 is missing. unbelievably I forgot to hold hands with someone that day. I was on residential with work surrounded by people that would have held my hand but still I forgot to do it. I think this happened for many reasons and at first I was annoyed with myself for my lack of foresight but on reflection I have been able to let that go. On day 56 I did hold hand with 3 different people none of which for 30 mins. The first hand holding was a boy helping me to get up a hill, I still remember of the feeling of this action and the power and energy of being hauled up the hill. The next two were in a circle around a campfire. In the campfire moment it did occur to me that I had not held hand with anyone and instead of saying there and then can someone hold hands with me I said to myself “Oh I’ve not held hand with anyone I must remember to do that!” This has spurred me in the last week to just say the words and to not wait until it feels convenient. On that weekend I was constantly putting other things first and that feels right and good and appropriate but I am also aware that i missed the opportunity to share a moment with someone because I felt it wasn’t important enough. I am more and more aware that it is not about it being important but about me being brave and putting myself out there. enjoy the back catalogue of the last weeks photos.
