Softness you know, isn’t the be-all and end-all in texture, even with the experience it is to touch & wear (and curl up on someone’s lap of) today’s technologically advanced materials.  This morning for instance, I was quite comfortably placed on top of a wooden grate—the one the heat comes out of.

Little blind babies (which this house had witness of many years ago) are usually the recipients of so many soft furry teddy-things, when what they would find immensely more interesting is something with hard angles and curves—they are soft themselves, so more softness is just so boring.

And when you really think about it, there is just so much more out there than ‘soft’ and ‘hard’.

Thanks Boss, for rough and smooth, wet and dry, small bumps and large bumps, woolen things and wooden things, hairiness and skin-head types… help people to also know, notice, be thankful for—the abstract ‘texture’ in their lives.
