As a pianist, my hands are my most valuable asset I suppose. I’ve never been able to stand pain in my hands of any kind, and the thought of injury to my hands has always given me the shivers. Hands are both delicate and strong. With our hands, we give and take, push and pull, love and bless others. I’ve always been fascinated with hands, sketching them, photographing them. Baby hands are so very precious!! And my hands have become a way for me to communicate with my deaf friends through ASL.
Please read this article by Randy J. Guliuzza, P.E, M.D. called Made in His Image: The Connecting Power of Hands. After finishing the last bit, I will never look at my hands the same way again.
