warmth, color....oh and hugging

few of my favorite things...
merino wool, felting needle, hot tea...
first day of artfest heading into Sunny Carvalho's class...

Just to pass on a little bit of important information...
did you know that there is a 6-second factor in regards to hugging?
My desk calendar says:
'If you want to give an especially powerful hug, hold on for at least six seconds. This is the minimum time necessary to promote the flow of oxytocin and serotonin, mood-boosting chemicals that encourage bonding.'
hmmm good to know as you go into this fine weekend...may you get and give many 6-second (or longer) hugs.


  1. I didn't know, and since I have my D to visit, I will be making sure I get my six-second bursts - thank-you!

  2. Six second hug to you, Kelly! I'm missing our fun times around the dining room table at Fort Worden.
