the universe has spoken. haha.

so yesterday, literally the minute i posted my blog about feeling void of creativity and desperately in need of universal-connection, i received an email from one of my very best, super fab, brilliant and loving friends.  she forwarded me the you tube post below.  if this ain't the universe at work i don't know what is.  look at the link then come back to this message........

okay, so do you love it, or what?????  i immediately picked up the phone and squealed to my homegirl how much i love her for sharing this with me (and countless other reasons, of course) and asked her if she wanted to go hug a bunch of strangers with me in boston one day.  being the natural hugger she is, she quickly agreed and now we are setting out to embrace the city.  wanna come????

if you, too, are a happy hugger and would like to join us for this random-acts-of-lovefest, please respond to this post with your name and enthusiasm.  if you are in another city and are interested in joining this loving effort, please let me know so we can get word out to friends in your area.

let's hug 11am - noon on sunday, april 17th.  in boston, it's the day before the marathon so there will be lots of people in town to cozy up with.  we can grab lunch after!

meet us at 10:30 in faneuil hall in front of quincy market by 60 state street.  we'll spread out from there.  friend me on facebook (Vanessa Gobes) and i'll post any changes or updates there. 

btw, if you don't like to touch random peeps but want to participate in the fun, please volunteer to videotape this so we can post on you tube!  

yay!  so fun!!!


  1. Great idea! Bring some Springtime happiness and love to the city of Boston. I'll be there!!
