THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SENSE OF TOUCH
Teaching The Blind Through The Sense Of Touch
Just as the deaf can often enjoy music quite a lot, beauty can indeed be experienced by the blind. The sense of touch can often be of great assistance to those with visual impairments.

For them, objects are much more beautiful if they are even and smooth, things with roughness or with a crack would cause some discomfort.
