Human Contact

Tell Me A Story

“For all that we spend our days snuffling and rooting for information, trafficking and trading in it, milling and shilling, wired for hire, what we crave most is touch, warmth, skin, joy, hope. So we tell each other stories as a way to extend the hands of our hearts. We use our words and hands and mouths to tell stories. Mark these words: as the century gets ever more electronic and virtual and remote, we will ever more turn to the tactile, the actual, to wood and wool, stone and bone, cloth and paper. To stories we can touch. We yearn and thirst for what is real, what was born in the ancient earth.”

—Brian Doyle, author, Grace Notes (2011)
