Touch as a gateway

We are in constant contact with things. So it is easy for us to lose touch with our sense of touch. Be more aware of touch today. Notice the sensations of water on your skin, the feel of your clothes against your body, the solidity of the chair you are sitting on and the ground you are standing on. Can you sense them gently pressing back at you? Notice textures as you pass them. Wood. Wax. Flowers. The bark of a tree. The different fabrics in your home. The cement pavement. A tile. A painting. An instrument. An apple. An orange. A banana. Ice. … Play with things, noticing how all your senses come together to engage with your sense of touch. Revel in it.
