05/11/2004: "Free hug"
Did you read this story about this huggable guy in Washington Square Park: The New York Times >"Inviting the Public's Embrace, One by One." What a sweet idea! I'm thinking of offering a free hug at SOY. Please ask for a free hug next time you come in.
Some reader of this blog commented yesterday: "ah..yes..youth. What a lovely poetic time of innocence, vitality, & promise. Pity we cant barter father time for clemency " Well, youth is certainly beautiful, but I also find growing up (or old) so nice and comfortable. I don't think I'd ever want to go back to the time when I was so vulnerable. I still get into trouble and get hurt, but learned to minimize the pain. So what, if I have to use so much more moisturizer than a few years ago. Physically, I'm in much better shape than 10 years ago. I wouldn't have been able to run marathons back then.
