You touch me

Have you ever been touched by some-one, some-thing, some-experience that changed you? Changed the way you look at the world? Changed the way you feel about certain things? Changed the way you see, the way you think … the way you … changed you? Changed you in such profound ways that you didn’t even realize it when it was happening?

Sara Bareilles wrote a song called “Gravity” that has the lyrics “You hold me without touch. You keep me without chains.” That is the type of effect I’m talking about. The effect that holds you when your not around; that constantly whispers in the back of your mind; that keeps you without chains; that keeps you seeing through new eyes even when you’re alone.

I’ve had that experience. Both in the further past and in the recent past. And if you let go enough … if you’re not afraid of being touched … it can be a remarkable experience.

So the question is: “Have you ever been touched?” and “Can you be touched again?”

See you on the wire
