Reach Out and Touch: A Project for the Rest of May 2020

May 1, 2020

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.

In “Tales from The Loop” (S1E1) there’s a scene where a young girl touches a bump on her nose and then reaches out to touch a bump on a woman’s nose.

If I say any more it’ll be a Spoiler.

Exhibit C.

Diana Ross timelessly sang,

 

Reach out and touch
Somebody’s hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
Take a little time out your busy day
To give encouragement
To someone who’s lost the way
(Just try)
Or would I be talking to a stone
If I asked you
To share a problem that’s not your own
(Oh no)
We can change things if we start giving
(Why don’t you)
Reach out and touch
Somebody’s hand
Make this world a better place
If you can
If you see an old friend on the street
And he’s down
Remember his shoes could fit your feet
(Just try)
Try a little kindness and you’ll see
It’s something that comes
Very naturally
(Oh yeah)
We can change things if we start giving
Why don’t you
(Why don’t you)
Reach out and touch
Somebody’s hand

Exhibit D.

Our turn.

Even if we can’t reach out and physically touch someone during this pandemic, we can still reach out to them.

Who’s it gonna be? Name three to five people to whom you could reach out today.

Choose a way you’ll do that today— online, with a phone call, through the mail, or how?

All rest of this month, let’s develop this as a healthy habit of reaching out to people…intentionally and appropriately and regularly.

Exhibit E.

Please let me hear from you, any of the usual ways, about your who and your how and your habit of reaching out and touching.
