Where do you think the hand-shake greeting came from? The hug? In preindustrial times, an open armed hug exposed your belly to a knife attack by someone you trusted when you should not have, so we shook open hands, demonstrating the absence of a knife and not unnecessarily exposing our soft, vulnerable belly. A full-on hug requires great trust and damned few of us have that anymore, do we? My father never hugged me or told me he loved me, and I am an only child. Today, I love my hugs and get lots of them at my 12-step meetings. My father's father was old school and I never saw him hug my father. Maybe it was a hold-over from old Europe. For me, I prefer the hugs! Stress R Us
