there truly is nothing as powerful a game-changer as touch. the touch of your lips to the tiny fingers of an infant, the touch of your ailing parent’s hand in yours, the touch of an embrace by a beloved. when you are yearning to be held, to hold – waiting – and the moment comes, the briefest of hugs, the slightest brush of fingers against your cheek, the feather kiss on the top of your head, the swept-up entwine…all capture the attention of every nerve ending and of your heart, and you sigh, at last. surely all will be well. you are not alone in this vast universe.
