The human hand is so amazing and we tend to take it for granted.

The hand is so very personal to the core of human life and learning, and it is our instrument for specialized training and skills.

Hands are our tools of life and survival, from cradle to grave.

There is a direct connection from our hands to our hearts and minds.

An artist or craftsperson making something by hand leaves the mark of her hand on the piece and some of her spirit within it.

A woman leaves the feel of her hands on her family and friends.

A woman works, nurturers, and comforts with her hands.

We must use them wisely, maybe a pat on the back for those you know and love…and for yourself too!
