Also, I just love seeing what, if anything, about an image, is appealing to people. Since I've never met most of you in person, it gives me glimpses of your personality, and I quite enjoy that. So, thanks for the feedback. And now, for the second chance for you to weigh in on something of interest to me.
On my last post, I found a comment from my friend in Spain, Oreneta, about her experiences with touch very interesting. It made me think about how touch, not just from another human being, affects me. There's texture of materials. And there's obviously the effects of passionate touch from another person. We're all pretty familiar with that. I hope. But I'm not really talking about that. I'm talking about all of the other more subtle forms of touch we enjoy. Personally, I love to have someone wash my hair. Whenever I get my hair colored, I absolutely love the part where Miss B. rinses, washes and rinses my hair again. She massages my scalp and makes me feel shiny and new. If I ever become extremely wealthy, I'm going to pay someone to do that for me more often. I also love the feel of a baby's tiny hand wrapped around my finger. There's something about that I find very comforting. There's so much strength and trust in that little hand.
And thanks to Oreneta's willingness to share, I'm now curious about the rest of you. Your thoughts please on touch, in any form or fashion, and how it affects you. You'd think I was working on a thesis or something the way I'm all yadda, yadda reflective on contact this week. Nope. Just nosey. Dare I ask? Have you hugged someone today?
