A memory forever burned into your mind. Your first concert, a larger-than-life experience where you lose yourself in the energy and excitement of the spectacle. As the first note rings out, the world around you fades away and it feels like the song is being sung just to you.
While many hand gestures are rude or easily misunderstood across cultures, the so-called "hand-heart" pictured here has been growing in popularity for several years. Easily made by one person, it can also be made by two people, each forming one half of the heart shape. It's meaning, according to Taylor Swift, lies somewhere between "I love you" and "Thank-you".
While the hand-heart may not surpass the peace sign in popularity, humans have used the heart symbol for hundreds of years to express what words sometimes fail to do: love, affection, passion, excitement, admiration, liking. In a world dominated by shorthand and LOLs, this heavily stylized shape communicates our intent in an instant.
