Feather

June 7, 2012

I googled feather therapy and got different types of massages as a result. That was not what I had in mind. At certain point in our childhood, we are going to discover a feather. Caressing the skin with it gets a pleasant response from the nervous system. Running the feather against the hair in the arms might give us some goose bumps. We feel an increasingly strong tickling sensation when we run the feather from the knees all the way down to the sole of our feet; we end up bursting into laughter. If that is a first time, we play with the feather to the point of exhaustion. All that laughing feels really good.

If laughter is indeed the best medicine, why can the feather therapy – just like we had when we first found a feather – be more in use? Squirrels have sensorial hair and when they rub those hairs against some stimulating surface, it might make them laugh. Yes, squirrels do laugh… and frequently. I decided I wanted to laugh more after witnessing squirrels’ laughter.
