..Without

I was thinking why people get restless? Maybe it is because they have a desire which is unfulfilled or incomplete.

Then i came to think of the very clich├ęd question of what is it that I cant live without. And knocking off illegal answers like Books/Music/Food/Water/Air/Sleep and the likes.. I roughly figured out that it is 'Touch' that I can not do without.

By touch I mean that the virtual feeling of being loved or loving is not enough - I need presence just as much. I need to feel love and affection under my fingertips.

I don’t know if I am being juvenile in saying this. I am totally aware of truths like - "The one who looks outside dreams, and the one who looks inside awakens", but till the time I dont reach to a level where I can honestly say that I need nothing, not even myself, I would want to believe that it is Touch for me.

I am happy to see that there are people who know what they can/can't live without or atleast someone is thinking on these lines. Most of the people I know (including myself) don't even want to think of thinking on it.

I think you would be having a good idea of whom touch you want or atleast expect, as you might not like everybody to give you a touch. :)

And to what extent the touch is possible, as it might not be reasonable to expect it all the time.

You can freely choose to defer on this thinking as even I am not sure of it's relevence to you and if I am making any sense to someone here!!!!! :)
