1) Allergies are dumb
I have changed my mind about hugs. This Friday I spent an hour participating in the Free hugs movement. As simple as it sounds, I felt like we made a small difference in the world. A world that has been hurting so much lately. When you hold a sign bearing the words FREE HUGS you create a warmth that radiates. You don’t just hug the well financed, well showered, well loved. You offer a hug to whomever needs one. There were people who pulled their cars over. Those who crossed streets. Those unsure who finally acquiesced and seemed more full for it. I am reformed.
