A Show of Hands: Communicate

I learned the sign language alphabet in college, and I was fascinated by the concept of communicating solely through the use of one’s hands.  Most people can communicate to some degree through gestures, but it’s possible to have an entire conversation using sign language.  While some people are more than happy to express their feelings by flipping up their middle fingers, I stick to friendlier gestures when I’m trying to communicate.

A Show of Hands: Peace

In honor of completing my first year of blogging here on WordPress, I am engaging in a fifty-two week multi-media project I call “A Show of Hands”.  Our hands enable us to communicate, to express ourselves, to create.  Each week,  I will craft and post a drawing or painting that celebrates the incredible, versatile hand and all it can do.  Today, I am sharing one of my favorite hand signs and something this world could use a little more of—Peace.
