I’m still processing our trip to Southern California. It was both a wedding celebration and a mini family reunion, including the colorful Croatian characters (she said fondly) who are our family-by-extension.
There were hugs in abundance.
And I was always a bit off, don’t you know. Out of sync.
When I hug, I head straight for the shoulder.
But their first destination is the cheek, for the preliminary kiss just before the hug.
It made me think.
How many styles of hugs are there? (Caveat: I’m strictly talking about hugs between friends, not between lovers.)
• The bear hug.
Sooooo — how do you hug?
A hug is like a boomerang – you get it back right away.
~ Bill Keane
Hugs are the universal medicine.
