Love Is Free... So Are Hugs

Hugs for all!

Linda lobbied hard today for a positive, upbeat, loving post, so here goes:

Nothing in life is free? Ya, tell the crows that.

And what about love? And hugs? Free, free, free - it costs nothing to give them away. And the more you give, the more you get. Also free.

Love and hugs (and a few quotes) for all of you out there in this big ol' crazy wonderful world!


"No matter how hard you hug your money, it never hugs back."

- H. Jackson Brown

Oops. Was that one negative? Not to worry - the next one is very playful.

"I will not play at tug o' war
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs...."

- Shel Silverstein

And more seriously - physical touch and love are necessities for humans to flourish and reach their full potential. No amount of money or stuff can yield the benefits of love, and the touch of another human being. Or friendly mother wolf...

"Every day you should reach out and touch someone.  People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."

- Maya Angelou
