Missing Hugs

We are seeing people in different ways. We trust that they have been locked down and smart about navigating society. We can have dinner together at one of our homes, outside. We still don’t hug and kiss hello. I miss hugs and kisses.

I saw these gifs on my weekly email from California Sunday Magazine. It is one of the things I miss most. There is this awkwardness to start the convo when you see each other. Kissing and hugging or even shaking hands connects us before we start to talk, hang, or eat. That human touch is so important.
