I visited my good friend's home today; we had a Hebrew kirtan jamming session, she, me, and another friend. As I entered her house, her dog, Leggy, came rushing over to me as she usually does, squealing with excitement, jumping up and down, and licking my chin when I knelt down to stroke her. She so unabashedly expressed her excitement. My friend laughed and stated that Leggy is just so happy to see me. I said I wish I was like that too: able to approach people and freely and exuberantly express my intense and eager desire to just hug them and kiss them and be ever-so close to them.
