Story of Healing by Touch from Julie:
Healing from the Pain of Separation
Oh my! I thought I had lost all of those juices.
After a separation from my husband I was still feeling raw and lonely. I attended a retirement party for a friend where there was dancing, and I was feeling particularly isolated and side-lined.
Along came someone I only knew professionally and he asked me to dance. I felt stiff as a board, but he was so light on his feet and knew how to humor and maneuver me. Within a minute we were swinging and swaying like an old couple. My colleague held me tight in a fast waltz. We did lots of whirling, and a wonderful dip at the end. Oh my! I thought I had lost all of those juices.
Without words, but through the touch one feels through dancing, I realized that I could feel connected with others, I could enjoy my freedom, and thoroughly enjoy myself.
I was okay!
