A baby’s laugh, innocence reminding us to not have a care in the world.
Lovers slipping hands down the small of a partner’s back, a signal of longing.
A mother or father’s pat on the child’s shoulder, encouraging good achievements.
Friends arms are reaching out for hugs, closing in on their bubble of like.
A person reveals an intense sadness; good fortune rewards them a comforting human.
Individuals are caressing themselves, indulging their passions.
A band-aid smoothed over the cut of a toddler learning to walk, expressing care.
Exquisitely arranged music enters our beings, a feeling of buoyant perfection.Strangers are saying profound, meaningful words connecting withother minds, unleashing inspiration.We spend much of our lives positively in touch – physically, emotionally, and yes, even mentally.
Always remember to touch each other.
