(Video link here.)  Tommy Edison, a film critic who has been blind since birth, talks about his favorite things to touch in this surprising video (one of a series about the point of view of a blind person). It is a swell reminder of how just tuning in to our senses can yield immense pleasure, inspiration, even hope, by bringing us right smack into the delicious moment.

Today we found ourselves way more aware of the endless textures and feel of the things around us.
