Wonderfully written, and well worth reading. The comments are worth reading too. Here's mine:

Touché!! I was a bit surprised by one comment you made – not about the sign – the security guy was doing his job, but about the hugs. You said that at Burning Man you wouldn’t consider a hug to be a gift. They may be given freely, ubiquitously even, but EVERY SINGLE ONE is still a gift. Next you’ll be tring to tell me that the oxygen given to us by plants every moment is not a precious gift!!

Gilbert Fowler wrote, ““As I look back over the truly crucial events in my life I realize that they were not planned long in advance. Albert Einstein said, ‘There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is.’”” Whether Einstein actually said that is questionable but the point is well made.

For the past nine years my wife Marcia and I have been offering Free Hugs to locals and tourists to our fair city alike. We’ve hugged people from 66 countries (that we know of). We’ve hugged people in great joy and we’ve held people in deep sadness. We offer, but we stand away from the sidewalk and people have to come to us. There are those who are almost willing to walk out into traffic to avoid us and those who literally run toward us. People ask us about our purpose for being there (kindness) and they offer us little vignettes into their lives. We plant seeds, and I can assure you that every single moment of connection is a gift. As those who guide me have said, “Perspective IS Everything.”

Keep doing what you do. Give your gifts, whatever they are.

Hugs,
M&M

YaY!! I understand the concerns about extra cost, but as it becomes more common costs will fall and the benefits (environmental, financial, etc. greatly outweigh the costs...
