FMTSO: Things I Like To Touch

I've been really pre-occupied these last couple of weeks.  My sister, who means the world to me is going through a tough time right now fighting the big monster called Cancer.  My perspective has changed and life seems so much more precious to me.  There are people I want to see and things I want to do before it's too late.  I have vowed to spend more time with my sister who lives about five hours away.  I spent all of last week with her and so my first photo is of the two of us.  I set up my tripod and clicked away.  I love to touch and hug my sister as much as possible.  She is an amazingly strong and beautiful person who has the most positive attitude and I am inspired by her.  She is a year younger than I but I learn so much from her. She is a rock. She is my rock.

Every now and then.....

Ok a lot,
My lips need to touch the flesh of my husband.
I'm very affectionate.

I also really love to touch my dog.  She gives me pure joy.

I love touching my hair.  It feels good to run my fingers through it.
If my husband had more hair I'd run my fingers through it all the time.

There are so many things that I am tempted to touch.
I love to rub my fingers on the leaves of plants such as the colorful plant below.

I love the feel of fabric.

If I see someone wearing a really cute sweater or blouse I will often ask them If I can touch it.

I've never been turned down yet.

I love to touch and smell leather.

Leather makes me feel wild and free.


My favorite thing to wear in winter.

I like the way my hands and fingers feel inside.

It inspires glamour and sophistication in my attitude.

Rabbit fur is soft to the touch.

Sorry folks.

I've had this rabbit fur for about 18 years.

I do not condone skinning rabbits or shooting them.

I am a huge animal lover.

Other things I like to touch are books.

The glossy covers are cool to the touch and they feel so good.

I like the feel of a good pen in my hand and the way it glides across the paper when I write.

I like touching my hands to the cold tile.

I think I like shiny and smoothe things.

I love touching people.

A good hug can cure many ailments and relieve the thickest of tensions.

For my soul to be touched by another's soul is the greatest feeling in the world.

My soul has been touched once and now it cries for recognition.

Touchy feely.  That's me.  I'm like a kid in a candy store.

I have to touch everything that looks good or appears strange.
