When we consider our five senses we quickly realize that four of our senses (sight, taste, hearing and smell) are enjoying sensual overload, while touch is being persecuted. Modern society with its eclectic mix of creature comforts seeking to pander to our every need is, in so doing, insulating us from touching life. The message is screamed by society, by the media, by parents, by colleagues – “Don’t Touch!” And with unerring subservience, we obey. We no longer run in the rain, walk in the mud, eat in a meadow, swim in a creek. We now drive in a car, walk in a mall, eat in a restaurant, swim in a gym. We no longer touch life like our forefathers once did. Gone is the sting of the evening breeze on our wet face and the welcoming warmth of the crackling hearth fire. This has been replaced by climate control. Gone is the bump and jolt of the wagon traveling the dusty road. This has been replaced by automatic luxury cars. With clinical precision touch has been removed from our lives. And with this we have lost our energy, our vigor, our health and many other virtues we once had. And so we spend millions of dollars trying to fix our waning energy and our waxing waist, our decreasing joy and our increasing stress. Yet before us lies a simple solution, we need only reach out and Touch Life! We need to rediscover the simple zest for life that people seemed to have a hundred years ago. It was a life of open fields, fresh air, hot sun, cool rivers, dusty roads - but it was a life pulsating with energy. Touch Life is the story of all our lives. A story that starts with us full of energy, zeal, vigor –children running in the rain. And then it traces our slow but inevitable acquiescence to the programming of society as touch is removed. But with this realization begins a journey as we learn once more to rediscover the energy, the passion, the enthusiasm for life that we once had. Touch Life is a journey that ends with the beginning of the story of the rest of your life.
