Finished reading: Seek You by Kristen Radtke 📚
Read it in a lazy Sunday afternoon laying on a giant bean bag with my wife also reading a good book.
It is a beautiful life story with technology, psychology and art all reinforcing how important is it to touch. And be touched.
The term skin hunger resonates deeply with me. I have that craving for touch all the time.
I remember how lonely I was in my 20s. I would often go out to eat with a book and to the movies to be near other people. To share a pleasant conversation or brief physical connection.
In my 40s now, I share a generation with the writer and also remember the days before the internet was as ubiquitous as air. There was a different sort of solitude that came before the technology to summon another human from anywhere in the world in an instant.
