Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-05
The suggester says: ''I find it to be beautifully emotional. When people don't feel good, most (me included) will turn to locking themselves up and feel bad alone and all by themselves. That's why I find it really sweet that when someone doesn't feel good he actually asked the help from others to make him feel better, which in this case in the form of a hug. A very honest and touching message. It definitely brings this warm and fuzzy feeling inside.'' A Hug by `ArhcamtIlnaad ( Suggested by macheli and Featured by Sander-Seto )

I LOVE THIS - the simplicity is a wonderful touch. I love the font's not too imposing, but it's also not trashy at's the PERFECT font for what is being stated.
I know most people have felt like this at one point or another...I know I sure do...and the way the words are kinda fit into each other like puzzle pieces but still maintain a wonderful flow is calming in itself...while bringing a message to the people who see least me...I know after I saw this, I know I now want to go out and hug some people who look down or sad.
All in all...I LOVE THIS! I can't wait to see more work like this.
Also, the artist comment just adds to the greatness.

Text can be so simple, yet so meaningful and powerful. This literally left me speechless. It also made me think. Hard. When I saw this, I had one of the most important epiphanies I will ever encounter. I realized that not only a hug can make someone happy, but it can also help heal pain. Never had I known that my mother was curing my cold when she gave me one.

Hugs are:

- Love Encouragers.
- Friend Makers.
- Smile Producers.

But most of all, they are what makes our world still spin~

A well deserved Daily Deviation. Nothing has made more glad today than to see this. :heart:

Ah, I feel like if somebody shot me right here in my heart, it hurts so bad. Even though I DID try the pain of a real built.
