These amazing hands of ours express appreciation with applause, a “job well done” with high fives, they wave hello or good bye, they hold themselves together in prayer, they also hold hands with a friend…and of course, they move the pen to write. But look at this: they also combine The Vimala Alphabet with needlework! What fun!
These hands -- these hands!
Brain is hand and hand is brain
And their interdependence
Includes everything else
Right down to the quarks.
