Neil Diamond

Touching Hands

Two words anchored in the musical gifts of Neil Diamond which induced an audience full of strangers to lift their arms high and–touch hands.

Supping with pals I was angled to see a couple at the next table weave their fingers in tender touch as they sipped wine together. Their touching fingers moved ever so tenderly as their smiles linked their faces in apparent comfort.

When the music broke, I felt the irresistible instinct to go to their table, touch each of their shoulders and tell them how inspiring it was so see their “gentle affection.” They beamed with gratitude for being noticed, though quickly added it was “not their intent.”

When tender affection is in your field of vision, pause to take notice and thank those tenderness champions for adding reminders that “Touching Hands” touch hearts.
