It’s a ritual we take for granted, when we say hello, when we say goodbye, when we close a Boston real estate deal,… and it’s something we’ve all of a sudden had to learn not to do.
Even if we can’t touch, we can still use our hands to communicate good will. A good example, is the Plains Indian greeting where you raise your palm out and shine it at another person from a distance.
Perhaps we’ll look to Asia for alternatives, bow to each other. And await the day when we can once again join hands with our fellow man and woman.
