They can last only a fraction of a second (a smile – sometimes only with the eyes, like the one we have to give since we have to go out wearing masks -, a hand gesture – sometimes even from the top of a paraglider), up to a lifetime (my dear Ibrahim) and end tragically with the death of one of us. 

They can be interrupted and then resumed many years later (like my touching reunion with Ian, whom I had known in Bangladesh, welcome in my place years later, and hugged tightly one more time long afterwards in his country, down under. 

Always, they are what makes us happiest, and the most human.
