This is how it works: You peer inside yourself. You take the things you like, and try to love the things you took. And then you take that love you made, and stick it into someone else’s heart, pumping someone else’s blood. And walking arm in arm, you hope it don’t get harmed.
— Regina Spektor :: “On the Radio”
A hug can turn your day around, it’s like an emotional Heimlich. Someone puts their arms around you, and they give you a squeeze and all your fear and anxiety comes shooting out of your mouth, and you can breathe again.
