Happiness & Hugs

You can’t wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.  ~Author Unknown

Hello friends, I just recently returned from my latest to trip to Burning Man in the Nevada Desert.  I’m still decompressing from the experience and there will be much more to write about and many images to share over the next couple of weeks.  Right now however I’m sliding through the transition phase from the Burning Man world to what burners call the default world.  There’s a natural dip that occurs when you come back into the world and one of the key factors is human contact.

At Burning Man, on the Playa people rarely shake hands when they meet, the custom is to hug.  So during that week in the desert you get far more hugs than normal.  This raises your mood and makes you feel better about yourself and quite frankly humanity in general.  So I’m sitting here tonight writing this piece wishing for a nice big hug to make me feel better and the thing is, if there is someone near you right now, they’re in need of one as well.  So get up and go over there and give them a great big hug and you’ll both feel better and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
