I just love this


Sometimes I read stuff by Black Hockey Jesus that explodes me into a firework of agreement and perfect understanding and delight at the putting the finger on it-ness of it, and I always plan to develop these little revelatory moments and share them with the world, but I never get round to it.

Today I don't have anything to add, but I just love this.

This world is joyous, even with its abundance of unfairness and blood. Sometimes when I'm in the shower, I ball up my fists and SNAP them open into a little explosion of fingers and mutter "I am a creature with hands".

Have you marvelled at your hands today?

I think this one might be for you, Darren.

Eyebrows.

Best non smutty body bit by miles. I could stare at people's eyebrows for ages.

It's not quite the same though is it?

I mean, do you marvel and feel the world is a magical place because you can... raise your eyebrow? I mean, the whole opposable thumb, tool using thing with hands... eyebrows can't really compare in evolutionary terms, whatever about aesthetic.

No it's not the same, it's different, and better!

tufts of hair that appear on our heads at a young age, and follow our expressions around for our entire lives.

We groom them even, these 3 or 4 cms of hair.

Wonderful.

It's all about the hands now. I heard someone on the radio talking about hands being the new thing. Someone somewhere decided that hands are it for the next while. It's because of things like the iTouch and biometrics and finger print security and all that. So expect art, tv programs, songs and particularly advertising centred around hands.

Am I that transparent? :)

Things are great though. Wonderful. We should take note of the complexity around us more.
