the simplest nicety

It is a beautiful world but sometimes, naturally, it can be a bit cruel.  Even the most positive person can have their negative days.  Last year i was having more than just a day, it was weeks of bad thoughts (i wasn’t writing either, it was a 2nd hiatus).  What brought me back was the simplest thing: i was helping a girl carry (sorry feminists, physical differences exist, and i do exercise!) two cartons of champagne (super, duper, heavy) maybe just 25 feet (in human terms, not human+wow-that’s-heavy terms); then, girl #2 (wearing angel wings, at least that’s how i remember it) gave me a big kiss on the cheek and a little hug.  I felt so warm.  I realized how important simplicities like hugs are, and i’ve hugged much since then…

Don’t forget to give someone a hug! it can change their world.
