Self Portrait Challenge- As a ?

WOMAN HOLDING ON

I am fascinated by hands. As my hands slowly get weaker I realize how precious they are. If I must loose the use of my body, I am grateful it's a slow process so I can really prepare and appreciate the smallest of movements. I can still grip a steering wheel to drive and yet I have no pinchers to pull up my pants, or button a shirt. I can't pick up my grandson, but I can hold him, touch him and hug him. I know I will someday only be able to love with my eyes, but that is still a powerful way to express love. To touch those we love in any way possible is worth living for. This is a portrait of me just savoring the joy of holding on.

Love the picture, love your posts. This one was particularly moving. I also thought your Haiga was nice, and the picture, tho'not particularly meant to illustrate the poem, was perfect.

You inspire me.

This photo is gorgeous, i mean really perfect.

And you are right about the eyes. I remember my mothers touch, yes, but the love in her eyes will never ever fade...ever.

It was all right there in her eyes.
