The Eyes Have It

Interesting to note that one of the by products of everyone wearing masks, people are now looking up. As into your eyes instead of looking down at their mobile devices or looking away.

There is a basic human need, I believe, to connect in order to feel safe. The beginning of the handshake was to prove that you didn't have a weapon in your hands. Naturally, we must wonder after centuries of being indoctrinated that the person behind the mask was hiding something, how safe am I? So, we connect by looking into each other's eyes, by waggling the eye brows or giving a quick squeeze of the eyes to say, "I'm safe. You're safe."

The question begs, will this last beyond the COVID-19 induced mask protection plan? Or will we return to our old habits of looking away?
