his hands

his hands , originally uploaded by gawdessness.

my youngest son has golden skin and hands that like to slip into mine and hang on,
and gentle fingers with small children and animals,
and he likes to squeeze and mold the clay on the wheel,
we have many, many bowls that he has made...
and his sisters too,
i keep things in them, feed the dogs with them, eat cereal and salad out of them and watch them stack up, wondering sometimes what to do with them all and so grateful to have to try and figure that out.

makes me so wistful, I loved my pottery classes, I was able to totally let the world fall away. I also miss having the kids around holding my hand and creating wonderful things I need to figure out what to do with :)

AND this is a great image too!

yay, ceramics! i love watching pom work the clay. i love working clay, too, but she's much more poetic and capable about it than i am.

i believe hands are as much windows to the soul as eyes are. somehow.

Photo Quotes
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
