Not All Connections Fade Over Time

Some connections are so deep that they are always there, synapses holding on with grim determination to each other just waiting for that time when they are needed.

Years can go by and then you meet that person again, after all that distance you're back with them and it comes flooding back as the electricity and chemicals flow down that long forgotten but ready path.
"A minute of silence" by Artist Marina Abramovic. Across a wooden table two seated figures hold hands, a man dressed in black to the left, a woman in a striking red dress to the right.
Artist Marina Abramovic was doing a live art performance that consisted of spending one minute of silence with a complete stranger. Many people showed up, but her response to one person in particular gave me the goosebumps, and you’ll soon see why.

At the 1:30 mark, Ulay, her former lover for many years sits down across from her. Marina and Ulay broke up more than 30 years ago and this is the first time that they have seen each other again since then.

This was obviously an emotional and shocking moment for her, and as you can see, she tries to carry on until the end, but seems almost unable to. I was fighting back tears myself with this one. This is really beautiful.

NO! I'm not crying, you are!
