    This captures something that is so lovely. It reminds me of when I lived in Mexico and when I talked with a good friend – she would always grab my hand or my arm.

    Being Latin American and living in Europe I have found proximity in social contact one of the most fundamental markers of cultural difference. I recall when I first arrived a good 15 years ago and realising that my personal space was in fact very small compared to most people I met and that meant that my physical proximity, to those unfamiliar with my cultural background, appeared as anything from closeness to intimacy to outright suggestiveness. At the time it was awkward but looking back, it led to many interesting conversations and long-lasting friendships.

      Agreed. In my culture, it is perfectly normally for folks to do this. I remember my friends and I always held hands but when I came to the “West:, two girls holding hands was looked upon as weird.

    love the picture of two friends(or whatever) and the way they are totally absorbed in their phone together (instead of the usual North American thing of people absorbed in their phones and not noticing each other at all) and then the posts from Jen and Janea, who both talk about cultural differences and closeness. The combination of words and picture ‘popped’ in my head. Thank you all.

    wonderful capture of focused attention.
    such a deep compassionate interest in what they are looking at.
    love the lines and rectangles.
