A Show of Hands: Snap

I’ve always thought of myself as an organizer and motivator with strong leadership skills.  Once, fifteen years ago, someone told me I was bossy—that I just snapped my fingers and expected people to jump. Those words were said in anger—one time—fifteen years ago—but they made me question who I was.   I know better than to let someone’s negative words define me, but still, those words have stayed with me.   I wish I could just snap my fingers and make them disappear.  I guess if I were truly bossy, I could.

    I like how the different colours and the jagged lines convey the range of emotions that the hand has… and as they converge at the finger tips, the waves become more animated, just waiting to ‘snap’ out!
