Fingers intertwined.
Stroke the palm. Stroke the thumb. Stroke the index.
Stroke each finger. Stretch the hand wide and then relax.
Gently touch the head.
Run fingers through hair.  Massage the scalp. 
Caress the cheek. Run fingers across the lips. 
Slowly move back to hair and rest.
Fingers glide down the arm. 
Soft and gentle strokes.
Head in lap. Listen to rhythm of the heart. 
Listen to the gurgle of the stomach. 
Listen to the intake of air. 
Listen to the silence.
