When the world seems to be spinning out of control again, something there is about gestures. Small human gestures that nourishes, that feels like a cup of water.
I know you know what I mean you have yours I have mine. The gestures are there to be seen if we are thirsty enough to see them.

A text message in the middle of the day for no other reason than to say "I see you."
A thank you note filled with splendor and tenderness, impossible to disregard.
A cup of coffee by itself is a heavenly thing. A cup of coffee with a friend is communion.
Gestures. Look for them. They are there. Gestures are something we can do to humanize the air around us.
