What is a Hug Tour?

What is a Hug Tour?

It’s not really like a band’s tour, since there is no entertainment.

It’s more like designating specific physical places (at specific times) as focusing points for positive, loving energy. (An unofficial pronoia flash mob)

I’ll give an explanation of the tour and a talk of some sort. Probably something about grandpa, HugNation, and something vaguely spiritual.

Then we’ll all hug.
It is an excuse to love
A reminder to feel the connection we have to every other person on the planet.

It is more about an *intention* than any specific activity.

And hopefully we’ll learn a little bit more about each other. Maybe share a tale or a laugh with other huggers.
We’ll know that, by being drawn to this same place, we probably have lots of overlap in values.

I mean, anyone who can appreciate Grandpa Caleb *and* me has to be a special type of person. 😉

Is it family friendly? Yes.
Is it religious? No.
Is it spiritual? Yes.
Does it contain crystals or Secrets? No.

I suggest you wear pink and wear a nametag. (I’ll bring a roll of “Hello, my name is ____” stickers.)

Feel free to bring gifts. (your presence counts. But you might be surprised how good it feels to share some of yourself (cookie, bracelet, fortune, song, carving, tea, chips & guac) with a stranger who becomes a new friend.

Hope to see you!!!

life, death, and magic moments

It’s been an odd weekend.
A day filled with thoughts of family.
About life and death.

Had lunch with an old friend in town to visit a dying schoolmate.
(sad and overwhelming)

Spent time with my beautiful family.
(joyous and overwhelming)

And in between it all, trying to work out details of the tour to honor grandpa.
(intimidating and overwhelming)

But somehow, even though I feel like I’ve lost my footing a bit.
I still believe it can all be good.
“Floating more” also means letting go of the need to understand…
Letting go of “My Plan.”

Embracing the now (in an Eckhart Tolle sense.)

Working to find the beauty in the moment…whatever it is.

Seeing “The Beautiful Glass.”

For life is made of magic moments…
Moments of love and connection and joy and truth.

A life’s fullness is measured by these moments only.

To the many who have given me magic moments, electronically and in person, THANK YOU.

May your magic moments be plentiful and profound.
