Holding Hands

I took the photo below at the airport.  It's a bit fuzzy because I took the photo with my iPhone while holding a Dunkin' Donuts coffee and glazed doughnut, pulling my little suitcase along while also trying not to lose this couple.  In other words, multitasking.

However, the lovely older couple in the photo were walking down the concourse holding hands so sweetly, I felt obligated to capture the moment.  And every time one of them had to pause a moment - to adjust a wayward shoe, to hike up a dragging purse, to peek into a little newsstand - the other would stand by patiently, and when they were ready to resume their journey, they resumed holding hands.  Every time.


People often look at grand gestures and lavish gifts as the end all be all demonstrations of love.  To me, this couple and their desire just to be tenderly connected epitomized love perfectly.  And I wanted to share that with you.

  1. I love this! I think holding hands is something people need to do more of. Probably sexier to me than other acts. :)
