It is such a beautiful word. When someone says that she is touched, a whole range of emotions get squeezed into that one word. The dictionary says that it means to be emotionally stirred. And that encapsulates the beauty of the word.

I am one of those blessed people who get touched very easily.

Before I conclude, there is yet another meaning to this wonderful word – to be slightly unbalanced mentally. I am often that too! I get so whenever I hear this beautiful song by a favourite singer:

    Not sure of this link will work . Was just trying to think of other memorable songs with the word ‘touch” in them . This has both “touch” and “feel” , not the same thing as we know ….. Digressing slightly I have heard people using the word as follows ..” the fruits were a bit touched” , meaning they were damaged in some way in transit . Not sure how legitimate the usage is .

      You are just too good to be true!

      I suppose fruit in this case could mean the British use and touched could also be that the fruit is a bit off!

    Nice song choice – leave us not forget the love theme from that Clint Eastwood classic Play Misty for Me –

    (Bet you didn’t see that one coming – check out the movie if you haven’t seen it)
