Touchstones are the parts of movies, books or songs that strike a chord in our lives to which we can relate. This is why we have favorites.
My favorite movie is You’ve Got Mail because I can relate to Kathleen Kelly in so many ways.
- She has a little bookstore where the people have shopped for years. They loved her mother and the way she entered into the lives of her customers. (My parents had a drug store where they entered into the lives of their customers with compassion and care.)
- She love books and writing. (I love books and writing!)
- She was fascinated by the ability to connect with people on the internet she had never met in person. (I marvel at this as well.)
These are just a few of my favorite parts. 🙂
This leads to my next question…
