Thought of the Day: Life by Proxy

without comments

Female in red pullover and blue jeans -coloured lights-2Nov2003, by Snowmanradio

I do not see you; I see the light’s reflection off your face
I do not hear you; I hear the rhythmic air within my ears
But when I touch you, I feel you; at least I feel the charge, with the connection between us only separated by nanoscopic space

I felt a little poetic this morning, thinking of how nearly all measurements we do are done by proxy, starting with our senses.  I think I will continue this theme soon, but in the form of comedy…  Stay tune.
