Many things come to mind when I think of hands. Helping hands, too many hands in the cookie jar, holding, pushing, communication, safety, danger. To stop. To strike. Outside of our faces, hands are probably the most expressive parts of our body. There are so many feelings right now, I know I am experiencing the full spectrum as the days pass. It's hard and weird, and sometimes there is joy. Much like hands, there are many meanings.

The photo is a collection of hands in my studio, gifted and purchased at different times and places. This song kept coming to mind as I was thinking about hands and help and a lot of hands being in the cookie jar at home right now. Maybe some of you remember it from Free to be You and Me. Or perhaps Shel Silverstein. It's about help and helpers. And working together. Or not :)

Agatha Fry, she made a pie
And Christopher John helped bake it
Christopher John, he mowed the lawn
And Agatha Fry helped rake it

Now, Zachary Zugg took out the rug
And Jennifer Joy helped shake it
Then Jennifer Joy, she made a toy
And Zachary Zugg helped break it

And some kind of help is the kind of help
That helping's all about
And some kind of help is the kind of help
We all can do without
