River greeted me with a big hug this past week, just before we printed her hands.
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.
Colored ink is more fun for kids! She picked purple this time.
A big thank you to Raymond for taking the photos!
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.
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!
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.
