Have you hugged anyone today

A little playing around with my home made lightbox, and inadequate lighting. Followed by more playing around in photoshop elements. Sprinkle in a few hug quotes and you've got yourself a post.

(all four are the same picture starting with the original straight off the camera, and ending with my finished picture)

A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.  ~Bil Keane, "Family Circus"


You can't wrap love in a box, but you can wrap a person in a hug.  ~Author Unknown

There's something in a simple hug
That always warms the heart,
It welcomes us back home
And makes it easier to part....
~Johnny Ray Ryder, Jr., "A Simple Hug"


A hug delights and warms and charms,
that must be why God gave us arms.
~Author Unknown


[E]very day you should reach out and touch someone.  People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.  ~Maya Angelou

Lovely quotes and picture! Hugs to you and Duke! Is that a little statue you have? It's so cute! I've never seen anything like it.

Hugs make your body release oxytocin, the "happy" hormones too! So hug someone and make you both feel happy. :)

Everything is perfect:the rhymes and the very,very sweet statue.
Really is so suitable for any time to be more kind or more understanding and loving person.
I love you !(for your Teddy bear)
hugs, aureliaeugenia

ANd you know something - I think it is like a smile - when you try to give it away - you can't - it comes tight back to you.
