(B) I found, as I wandered through the Met last month, that I was completely taken with hands. Hands in painting, Hands in the Asian Art wings, Hands above, Hands everywhere. They say so much about soul, somehow, don't they? Let's see a show of Hands for all who agree. An artist who is able to render a hand with great beauty is gifted beyond measure.
(C) If I don't get off the computer and finish unpacking (my least favorite thing to do, as I would naturally rather be on the road going somewhere with dust on my shoes and a few pennies in my pocket), it isn't going to be pretty. So long, farewell, auf weidersehen, goodbye! (And here, of course, we have another show of beautiful hands courtesy of the von Trapp children.)
