FB and texts and blogs are all a great way of spreading the word--
but my soul, my real communication center, has been feeling a bit
slighted lately. It is having a hard time really "connecting" with others.
Sure, I blog, FB, text, email and tweet, but I long for the slow, face
-to --face, look in your eyes, old fashioned way of knowing what is
going on... really going on with one another. Even in yoga classes we
stagger our mats so we don't have to touch each other. When I see
someone, and even more strongly, when I touch someone, my soul
knows so much more about them than I could ever read in 130
characters or less. The art of touch I fear is being lost in our society.
What with lawsuits and hyper-technology it is no wonder. Am I a
neo-luditte? Possibly, but I encourage you to be brave, dial into
someone's true communication center. Reach out, really reach out
-- be it their arm, their shoulder, their hand or their soul --
and touch someone!
