Seeking holiness?

Seeking holiness
This week's haiku was inspired by "The Holy Touch", Anita Silvert's post this week on her blog, Jewish Gems.

When you associate with people whose outlook on life whose actions and speech find the holiness in life, then you will tend to look for and find the same holiness, the joy and light. It's much like when our parents told us to hang out with the "nice" kids, hoping it would rub off, and hanging with the troublemakers would get us into trouble.

Leviticus 6:11
"Anything that touches these shall become holy"
Leviticus 6:20
"Anything that touches its flesh shall become holy."
