Hey there. If you would indulge me for a bit, I think you’ll enjoy this digest.
I’ve been thinking about love, and the curious and magnificent shapes it takes.
My nephew wrapping his arms around my neck in a hug
The older man who gently took his wife’s elbow as they crossed the street
A text message that simply says, “Hi. Was thinking boutcha”
The barista pouring hot milk onto a shot of espresso just so
A friend asking for help
Discovering a herd of deer on a morning walk
And this list of heart-swells goes on. All of these are simply moments of connection.
And now, on to the digest.
