2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate  HANDS. The other appendages. Two of them anyways. A good time to look at the Hands while SHE is trying to do HANDS OFF. Her hands are gnarled and one finger doesnt bend anymore. He uses his hands to play Bass. Zara Hablethwaite the ancient gypsy lady from urunga who had 2 poodles and a mini-minor read her hands in the tiny cottage on the lagoon and told her she would be wealthy in her old age and write romantic novels and have ONE GREAT LOVE. There’s more to a hand than at first appears. Kati B has tiny hands, smaller even than her mothers. Jim B has long frog like fingers that play mandolin and guitar. Hands are hands.

God has given us two hands – one to receive with and the other to give with. 
We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing.
Billy Graham




Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.  “Pooh!” he whispered.  “Yes, Piglet?”  “Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw.  “I just wanted to be sure of you.”  ~A.A. Milne


Hold a true friend with both your hands.  ~Nigerian Proverb

Better never to have met you in my dream than to wake and reach for hands that are not there.

Otomo No Yakamochi


The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands. 

-Alexander Penney


Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.

J. Jonker, Amsterdam, circa 1670


Where Did You Come From ?
Where did you come from, Baby dear?
Out of the everywhere into here.
Where did you get your eyes so blue?
Out of the sky as I came through.
What makes the light in them sparkle and spin?
Some of the starry spikes left in.
Where did you get that little tear?
I found it waiting when I got here.
What makes your forehead so smooth and high?
A soft hand stroked it as I went by,
What makes your cheek like a warm white rose?
I saw something better than anyone knows.
Whence that three-comer’d smile of bliss?
Three angels gave me at once a kiss.
Where did you get this pearly ear?
God spoke, and it came out to hear.
Where did you get those arms and bands?
Love made itself into hooks and hands.
Feet, whence did you come, you darling things?
From the same box as the cherubs’ wings.
Where did you get that dimple so cute,
God touched my cheek as I came through.
How did they all come just to be you?
God thought of me, and so I grew.
But how did you come to us, you dear?
God thought of you, and so I am here.

George MacDonald, 1871
