The ten­der­ness we feel is too often quelled by the anx­i­ety pro­duced from the oth­er. We mustn’t nav­i­gate the world with such sub­tly and instead pro­fess the sub­lim­i­ty of our nature in the con­fi­dence and grace of our foot­steps. To accept the nego­ti­a­tion of the accep­tance of an oth­er with a smile, a nod, a hel­lo, a hand­shake, a hug or a kiss on the cheek. This is the ten­der con­tract and it begins with human con­tact. To wor­ry less about one’s self is to already accept the audi­ence of the oth­er with­out wor­ry in our already clum­sy but spec­tac­u­lar dance of life.
