Hugging is not a common expression of mine--not for saying hello and definitely not for saying goodbyes.
But I learned about the wonders of hugging and somehow managed to perfect the movement in a single day after hugging repeatedly for.....there were so many hugs that I have lost count of it.
And so we hugged, hiding our faces from one another. I couldn't see your facial expression and neither could I establish a visual connection with you.
But I felt your heartbeat. To be locked within a tiny space for a few seconds of the world, the only connection was amazingly through our hearts. It was there and then I realized what was the fuss of a hug all about.
