Hands

I have been thinking a lot about hands this last week. You can learn a lot about a person just by looking at their hands. I actually have changed many an impression about someone after looking closer at their hands. Never in a bad way, it just tends to shift the way I see an individual.

My hands are probably my favorite thing about me. I don't really know why. There is nothing terribly special about them. But they are the same as my mother's and I will love her forever for passing them down to me.

  1. I've always taken into account the way a person's hands look, too. Especially mens hands. If they've got little hands, or dainty fingers, it really creeps me out!

  3. I completely agree. I once observed a boy for an entire afternoon and could have loved him forever just because of his hands.

  4. i definitely agree.
    as someone who worked in ceramics my hands are very important to me. and has made me realize others.
    in the winter you'd see my hands cracking and almost bleeding from the cold winter air and clay drying them out.
    short nails, cut down to as short as they can be without bleeding to avoid ruining a piece.
    my hands make me miss being in the ceramics lab.
    and i realize its when im working with my hands that i am truly happiest.

  5. I'm with you. Hands are beautiful. I especially love old hands. My grandfather's are so intricate....the wrinkles and marks tell stories to fill a lifetime.

  11. hands are one of my favourite parts of the body because i like being able to figure out if that person plays/played an instrument. for instance, i have piano hands, and it's getting easier for me to tell if people have played piano or not. even if it's not instrumentals, you can tell if someone is an artist by their hands. and lemme tell you, your hands are stunning. definitely creating wonderful things with them <3
