. “there is nothing as strong as gentleness and nothing as gentle as true strength..”
Ralph W. Solomon
The hand gently touching her face, and the careful way he carried her was probably what sold me. It came on the heels of the angry bereavement he showed when he pounded that knife into the floor, ready do harm out of grief. But I have a thing about the touching of the face, as if to check that she, in fact, really there, really alive. Just a small moment, of many I suppose. But not inconsequential .
Carol extending her hand to Daryl later on spoke to me too. Cause it wasn’t just about holding a hand. It was about comfort to someone in pain, and about helping him up off the ground, literally and figuratively. A hand up so to speak. And to me the most moving aspect of it was not that she offered it to him, but that he took it. There was hesitation and unsurity but once he decided to take it, to get up off the ground, they both held on longer than they needed to.
Small notes here: I don’ t make these gifs, they are made by some very talented people on the internet. I am not make any lately due to my computer being on the fritz ha. And because I use the tablet my spell check and stuff isn’t as good so I apologize.
So anyways thanks for reading my ‘middle of the night, can’t sleep’ randomness :)
