the couple

It was a crowded public square in a middle of a city. People were walking, sitting, eating, drinking, shopping all over the place. I was hanging out aimlessly, enjoying the happy peaceful mood of the crowd until I realized this middle-aged couple. I liked their tender, calm and sincere way of sitting beside each other in the middle of crowd. They were good friends, but not overtly sentimental. To me they had that magical “right” amount of friendship, deep enough to stay silent and cool and strong enough to gently hold on to each other. No overreaction, no underaction… just deeply gentle, passionate, and peaceful.

I liked them, I liked their moment.
