Circle

territory

See my feet?

Imagine them being at the centre of a circle two meters in diameter.

Intimate friends and family and may stand toe-to-toe with me, within the ring. They may reach for my hand, put an arm round my shoulder, and in greeting or for comfort, give me a hug.

Those in need are also welcomed in, if my presence may help.

Aquaintances and associates may place their heels several centimetres within the line, but not come too close without my willing agreement. Fake affection is not permitted.

Those who would do harm to me, my loved ones or even an innocent stranger, must stay away from my territory, lest I invade theirs with my tapping fingers.

  1. What a unique post! And very practical, too, I might add. LOVE the green tennies! It would have been interesting had you had other people standing as far from you as the next concentric circle would have been and then another. Like in intimate friends (which you have there), friends, acquaintances, or something like that. A pictorial guideline!
