What We Touch Touches Us
By Don Iannone
S
ometimes you touch things,
and they touch you back...in very special ways
that you never expected.
S
ometimes you have to lose yourself in things
to find parts of yourself
that you never knew existed.
S
ometimes the things you touch
are more powerful than you ever knew.
You might not have touched these things
if you knew their power beforehand.
W
e should never forget that we live
in a completely conscious and alive universe
that needs us as much as we need it.
So we shouldn't be surprised
by the power of all things we touch.

I always think of ‘me’ touching something else, from now on I’ll try to reverse the perspective…!:)

My goodness Don! Usually I just drop by and read, get a heart full. But I love the way you are displaying your art ... beautiful words and a beautiful style. A man who is not afraid of a little pink! I LOVE IT!

Much love, respect, and honor ---

Floots, loved the analogy to braille. How true.

Amias, I even own a pink dress shirt. Good hearing from you and I hope all is well with you.

Thanks Kai. Enjoy the spring.

Thanks Polona. May we all touch the world with our hearts.
