SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 293: Sensing

IMG_3340

Last week, I joined some friends in downtown Calgary to give free hugs to passing strangers. We donned blindfolds and had a sign reading, “I trust you, do you trust me?”

While wearing the blindfold, my other senses were heightened. I heard far-off conversations, noticed the various scents of people who hugged me, and was easily startled (unless given a warning: “Coming in!”).

Most people don’t tend to give the stretched-out, oxytocin-inducing hugs that I enjoy, but I had fun all the same, and was happy to touch the lives of strangers (and induce a few giggles).
