Do you know your special senses? (2)

Scientists have discovered that we can call to our consciousness far more sensory data than we originally identified.  Any one of us could tabulate a “whole sense” catalog of our surroundings at a hypothetical moment.  Tune in on all the sensations around you, the hum of a fan, the liquid twitter of the mockingbird on the fence outside the window, the whir of the neighbor’s well-tuned car, the perfume of honeysuckle from the garden, the roughness of the sandals on your bare feet, the blue, red, beige lozenges of the oriental rug, the corner page in your book, its crispness remembered by your fingertips… the pressure of the chair that supports you… soft voices from another room.

How does that make you feel?
