A High Five

“The high five is a celebratory hand gesture that occurs when two people simultaneously raise one hand, about head-high, and push, slide, or slap the flat of their palm against the flat palm of the other person.”

Everyone has given a high-five. Everyone has received a high-five.

To give a high-five you must receive a high-five.
To receive a high-five you must give a high-five

The best high five in the world requires both participants to give and receive. It can’t happen well if a person is not willing to receive or give. This simple gesture is a metaphor of ideal life together, where giving and receiving go hand in hand, literally.

What if we all gave and received as equally and organically as high fives?
