These amazing hands of ours express appreciation with applause, a “job well done” with high fives, they wave hello or good bye, they hold themselves together in prayer, they also hold hands with a friend…and of course, they move the pen to write.  But look at this:  they also combine The Vimala Alphabet with needlework!   What fun!

The hand not only moves the pen….!

This magical embroidery-and-crazy-quilt was fashioned by a Vimala Writer in New York.  On a whim, she decided to take a picture of it and send it to us.  When Vimala saw it, she immediately asked for – and received – permission to post it where everyone could see it!  

These hands --  these hands!

Brain is hand and hand is brain
And their interdependence
Includes everything else
Right down to the quarks.
