Weekly Photo Challenge: HANDS – there are hands to catch water, hands to play guitar, hands as an attitude of dancers, hands fixed by police, hands to climb up a wall, discussing hands and begging hands, touching or fighting hands – thanks to God that we’ve got hands …

    • thanks for:
      “Bhumisparsha Mudra”
      = touching the Earth hand gesture
      signified by holding the left hand in meditation,
      while the right is resting on the knee
      with all fingers touching the Earth.

  42. I’m writing to let you be aware of of the awesome discovery our child undergone reading your web page. She picked up such a lot of details, which included what it’s like to have a wonderful teaching nature to make many more completely have an understanding of some advanced subject matter. You undoubtedly did more than our expected results. I appreciate you for churning out those precious, dependable, edifying and as well as fun thoughts on the topic to Janet.
