    Starved I Guess.

    I have this "internet friend", his name is Nicholai. He's amazing and wonderful and says all of the right things to me, that's how it usually goes with internet friends right? Anyways, he's been there for me through some pretty terrible stuff lately, and even though I don't tell...

    Virtual Hugs Are Nice But ...

    yah, i enjoy a good virtual hug just as much as the next person, but they still cant replace the feeling of someones arms around you and the heat emanating off the other persons body pressed in close. It also cant replace the feeling of friendship and love put into a good hug...

    Cyh

     Consider yourself hugged.   It was a code between a special friend and I when we were in college.  When we parted and went our separate ways, we would put CYH on our correspondence just sort of a virtual hug in the days before the internet. I love getting...

    Goddess Knows We Could All Use One.

    At least today. I am a hugger. I love to be held close....and the small gestures speak volumes over the huge ones. Like wild flowers pick on the road side mean so much more than roses bought at the store. And a home cooked meal by candle light means more than a fancy meal...

    However ...

    ... reality is what it is. This is why I 'embrace' so many of you with my wings. When I'm in that place where nothing else seems to help, I wrap my arms around myself, and visualize the one I wish to be holding me.

    I Want A Bearhug

    Sometimes I just want a real, bearhug? Ya know? I'm not the kind of person who comes across as affectionate and willing for a hug. I'm not a big ball of sunshine and I don't show my emotions. But for once, I would love for somebody to walk up and hug me and hold me together. Then...
