Word of the Week: Haptic

As in: “The haptic eye becomes a point of reference for poets and artists who look closely at their territory, who discern its size and scale; who carefully draw the lines defining nooks, edges, and crannies and relief of its surface; who follow the roads and rivers cutting and winding through it … who touch the lairs and recesses inspiring the fantasies that mark what they see and what, in turn we observe before our eyes.”
