I walked today, using a slightly different sarong.
There were several positive verbal interactions with people. One young woman sitting with others read some of the sign and I explained what are bises. She did not wish to hug but she like the sign very much.
A man threatened me just north of the small craft center near the street West Greenlake Way.
Near the ending of the walk, a woman jogging came to me and put her arms around me at shoulder-level. I pulled my left arm in such a way that I could then place it around her also and blessed her and then she continued on her run having enjoyed hugging me. I was a fun and happy hug and rare compared to many others, because there was no preliminary gestures or conversations leading to the hug, other than her having seen the sign, I assume, at times previous.
