Four

We are officially on week four of 2012. Time never stops, and it seems to run a little faster as you get older. Am I the only one who feels that?
Anyway, I have joined a wonderful project called "in the Picture" by  Urban Muser, where you have to take a self-portrait, but with no deadlines. We all know how hard it is to be in the picture, right? So I decided to take it slow, and make this an once a month event, and I am happy with that.

This month's theme is A PIECE OF ME and I love it, because I do not have to show my face right away. My photo, is all about what most of us need and take for granted because having two of it is normal... My Hands

I use my hands a lot, and I guess they are one of the best pieces of me. I need this piece to make my family feel loved, to provide to them, comfort them and feel them...
I need them at work, to show that I care and sometimes send people away, but as a Pediatric Dentist, I use them a lot of times to dry some kids' tears due to fear and show them that everything will be ok.
I need them to share... to change chapters...to create...to touch...to feel... and to talk.
I need the best piece of me to Live.

  2. I love looking at hands. Except mine! I've had 80 year old hands since I've been 20. Oh to have nice hands like yours :). Gorgeous. And the reasoning behind your shot is beautiful too.

  12. I love this. And I love your description of your hands. It's so true that we take them for granted so this is a nice reminder to appreciate having two capable, strong hands.
