Flowers and The Importance of Hands

Views of a birthday bouquet
from J.
these hands I love 
making pizza so effortlessly on Sunday;
on Tuesday the right one got a deep puncture
in two places
no writing (for a teacher), no shoveling manure in the garden,
no dishes, no shirt cuff buttons.
be grateful for your hands today and all they do for you.
ready at the plate!

  1. Gorgeous flowers, Iris, and the pizza looks delicious...fresh goodness. I love making pizza, too.

    And I'm most grateful for hands, mine and yours, ours, people in care of this Earth. It's good to be reminded to nurture and care for our bodies, for all that we need them to do.
