Touch

I started fitness training today with a “personal trainer” (how cliché, but oh well) and there was this one machine that I can’t wait to get back on.  I have constant lower back pain and this machine works your back muscles. To me it just felt sooooo good, like a big, long stretch.  I’m so excited about this little discovery…

I was talking with a friend about massage therapy.  I think its appeal or success is partly because it's really sort of touch healing.  It’s like, having your hair done.  Don’t you just love to have someone wash your hair, massage your scalp?  It’s not that the scalp massage is so wonderful, it’s just very intimate to be touched by someone, and there's very little intimacy in our lives.
