1:1 the human connection


The Creation of Adam, a fresco painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo in approximately 1511, depicts God breathing life into man, Adam. God does this by touching his index finger to Adam's index finger. I have always found this image, what I call "the touch," to be the most profound example of "connecting with another human being."
