It is the verbal intimacy (more) than the physical that allows both, nurturing and growth for one another. And I somehow have always believed that the latter entails the former.
In the last five months I discerned that staying inside with familiar faces and with more physical proximity can sometimes also necessitate to build better verbal communication. Whereas on the outside, I encountered multiple oblique physical intimacies which too seem to be taking their own good time to flourish. Both of these I will refer to as shilly-shally new friendships. Friendships that are not necessarily seen through their longevity and sustenance but rather something that builds through time dilation, which will allow to construct newer meanings of association.
It is only through love and compassion that humanity has survived and also will for long enough, be it six feet apart or sixty!
