We'll Meet & Greet Again.

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks indeed for your lovely response to my previous upload, and two excellent mod's.Smile

Yes, we will meet and greet like this again but for now, it's the bitter sweet memories of hugs from friends that we hardly see any more and the gentle squeeze of a hand from those we don't know so well or meeting for the first time. I've always said that it's easy to feel lonely in a crowd and that's even more true of today.
It must be even worse for the likes of the Italians, Greek's and French who tend to be rather more tactile than the more reserved Brit's but, oh how we miss the hugs from those we love.

However; EPZ is like a great BIG virtual hug and always here when we need it.Smile

All the best to all and take care in the supermarket or chemist.

Another lovely smile John

I'm guessing but I reckon 15 - 20 years ago double (face) cheek kissing of the ladies started to become the norm for business meetings

Especially in the world of advertising

I remember the large retail company I worked for signed up a new PR agency

At the first meeting there were 3 of us and 6 of them ... all ladies

It took about 10 minutes for us all to greet each other before we could sit down and get on with the business in hand

And then when it was time to leave ... I nearly missed my bus! Grin

Great image John and the choice of b&w was the right one. Once again a smile that would make anyone feel better.

To everyone out there just make sure you do everything to protect yourself, as that is all you can do...

Such a happy photo.....yes touch is a thing of the past. I must say I enjoyed my physio massage a few weeks ago even though we had masks on.

Couldn't agree more, John.

Looks as if he has been shot by a paintball gun...

Great cheerful mono image John
(More hugs for all)
A lovely image and words John. It seems that the only way to get a hug now is to be a footballer!

I wonder if we'll find it difficult to hug as we did before with people outside our immediate circle?

Beautiful girl here John super black and white close up. But those words to accompany the photograph are so true. Everyone I know is fed up not being able to see family and friends. Hopefully and we keep saying this, people will be more sensible and that the vaccine will roll out quicker.
