Felt you, didn't see you, I was blindfolded ;)

It was the end of my PushFest Blind tour. Socks off. You led me. I thought I was in a shrine. Quiet, gracefully we walked. Then what I imagine doing Tai Chi would be like, slightly contacting only a wrist or slight graceful touch. Transformed to a dance class for the blind. I felt like a kid again. Playfully you lead me around. On all 4's, lying down, your feet were rubbing the floor on my right, hands on my left, then your hair tickled the back of my head. I was spatially disoriented, but without a worry, a new experience. Then I forgot where I was. I was running at almost a full tilt. Wind, flowing, area around me like space itself. I "saw" myself running through the universe. Beautiful. Your energy was lovely, confident. You let me walk in front. I knew you were looking out for me so I allowed myself to risk walking over an edge. Liberating. Since I couldn't see, I quickly forgot what I must have looked like. The beauty is that it really doesn't matter. I'm not sure if you were smiling, but I couldn't keep a grin off my face. I have been going to sleep, or sitting with my eyes closed with such fond memories you allowed me to experience. A new calmness has entered my thoughts. I hope not to loose the feelings learnt. You thanked me at the end and vanished from my senses as quickly as you came. No chance for me to thank you back. I sat and watched for at least an hour and a half after, watching others be taken on their own journey by you and your lovely friends. I almost cried a few times I was so happy. Your name was Z...AWESOME Thanks (blindfolded guy. I think I was wearing brown pants and a black T)
