Louise Slaughter hugging a woman

Sometimes you just need a hug, and maybe "sometimes" is today. Consider yourself virtually hugged by Louise. (And as you can see, she gave good hugs.) Hopefully this hug will carry you through the week. But if you feel yourself needing another, just come back here and envision Louise squeezing you into a happier headspace.  

Happy summer solstice! ∎
