Every year a public art work known as the Sea of Hands is created on one of the lawns at the University of Sydney. The hands show support by people for Indigenous Native Title Rights and Reconciliation. The Sea of Hands is made from the colours of the Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian flags (black, blue, green, red, white and yellow), and each bears the name of the person who planted it.
It’s nearly midnight, and our son has come into the bedroom, upset.
“I had a bad dream”.
I take him back to his bed, and offer to lie down beside him while he falls asleep.
“Will you hold my hand?”.
Of course I will.
I was reminded of this photo from when he was small. Really small.
I’m not sure who gets most out of holding hands, him or me?
