Like many others these days I guess you’re bored with your very limited view of the world through just a TV screen. I wonder if you’ve given any thought to taking a walk. It probably feels foolish just walking round your garden. Maybe you can take a longer walk if you have somewhere you’re unlikely to meet another person or where you have at least the 6 feet clearance between them and you.
Probably you’re quite an observant person. In the houses round about you there’s probably some indication of whether there’s a single occupant or a family. If you know there’s a single person maybe you could knock on a window and back away. This could easily be a person who hasn’t spoken to another human for days or even weeks. Maybe it’s a person in need of a chat or maybe even foodstuffs that you could get for them. This would be a virtual hug to beat the band.
Now what if you know there are a few single people or families in need in your area. Why not band together a group of friends and make sure everyone that needs a call gets a call and those that need shopping get what they need .Even if all they need is a chat. Look at the size of this virtual hug now,
We seem to have forgotten we have an involvement with the rest of the world and yet all around us the rest of the world is dying. We don’t know them, are not involved with them But the chances are that we are wrong on both counts and we won’t be there for someone who matters and they end up dying alone.If someone nearby collapses do you walk away because you don’t have a mask or do you run to them to help? This may be a heart attack and going the other way is a sentence of death. Don’t forget your humanity and keep spreading the hugs. You’ll find an explanation of how Hugs benefit you and others at the header to the Blog. You’ll be surprised at the benefits.
Be Well, Be Hugged, Stay Safe.
