Touch ….

“‘Touch’ is the single most expansive word in our lexicon. Its related definitions fill 23 columns in the Oxford English Dictionary, by far its largest entry.”

“Touch is both a noun and a verb, and act and an event. And it is a sense, ‘the most general of body senses.’ Aristotle regarded touch as the primary sense, both in the history of sensory development, and in its survival value. You can live without other senses, but you cannot survive without touch.”

“Our skin is our largest and most extensive organ of sensation. Any object that touches the skin announces a wide variety of qualities of that object… The skin is the surface of the brain. To touch the surface is to stir the depths.”

By jeannasoul

I'm a woman that is absolutely in love with life....I'm doing what I love to do-as a massage therapist,a writer,a seeker of all that touches my soul and lifts my body.
I find great pleasure in the midst of chaos, in time with nature and kindred spirits.
I love the wisdom and clarity of Paulo Coelho, the music that makes me dance, and being present with the person I'm with.
I write to fulfill my soul and, hopefully, to touch others.
