Talus and His Monkey Line

Talus and Mom came by share his two-year-and-seven-month hands with me.  He intently performed my requested hand printing, almost without instruction.  He printed his baby doll too!

Talus calls this line racing across his hand (above), “A Monkey Line.”  The monkey does fly from tree to tree with intent and grace.  I also like to think of it like a tight-rope where the walker is very aware of his (or her) every step.  Years of practice assure the walker remains wrapped to the line.

A Bundle of Bethany

Bethany and her Mom and Dad came by to have Bethany’s hands printed again.  Her first hand printing was in Jan. 2010, 2nd printing in May 2010, 3rd printing in Aug. 2010 and now Oct. 2011.  She is an absolute bundle of Love.  Two Big Heart Lines have developed.  One heart line is recorded as being ‘short’ in an earlier print and reading.  Now that Heart Line has grown up toward the index finger.  She owns 9 Loops on 10 of  her fingerprints.

Dad is curious too!

 

Preparing to Print

 

Inking Bethany
 
Lookin' Good!

 Colored ink is more fun for kids!  She picked purple this time.

 

A big thank you to Raymond for taking the photos!

Wyatt Turns Two

Snowflake Wyatt came by to have his hands printed just before his 2nd birthday but he was much more interested in being a kid – as he should!  We were more successful last year because we had three adults wrangling one snowflake.  I’ll know better for next time. 🙂

If it’s OK with Mom, it’s OK with me to play on the counter top with the cooking utensils.

 His hand wrapped tightly around the hair dryer.

At last a print (below) but mostly for fun.

 

Growing Talus at 1 yr and 10 mon

Snowflake Talus visiting in Summer.

His thumb is low set and angled widely away from the hand (above). This shows his desire to embrace a large playground.

Talus is becoming skilled in walking the tight rope – his head and heart are entwined into one line of Union.

Together we’ll watch his intense drive shine through his creative outlet.  Here he is moving to the rhythm of sound!

Snowflake River at 3 yrs and 4 months

May 27, 2011: River gave me the green light for printing and taking photos of her hands today.  By looking at her bare fingerprints, the ink prints and the enlarged scans of her prints, all fingerprints could be recognized.  Now I can clarify her Soul Potential and give her Mom and Dad a glimpse into her life challenges.  Those challenges are the guide posts for staying the course – on PURPOSE.
