Texture Around The World

Texture is something we take for granted those of us who are not blind. Those of us who can see are usually distracted first by what we see instead of what we feel. All kinds of different textures can be found no matter where you are. We can almost see texture before feeling it as our brain makes the connection from past experiences.

Below are several textures I have found around the world.

  1. My grandfather had a rare genetic disorder that caused him to go blind in his mid 20’s. I always love posts like this, ones which remind us to see the world with more than just one of our senses.

    1. I was just talking about this (similar) with my husband the other day. I said I wouldn’t mind if I was born without being able to taste food, but I would hate if my taste went away in the middle of my life.
