Finger People

I love looking at people's fingers. I googled to see if anyone else has written about it, surprised to find none. Strange but true, one of the things I notice when I meet someone is their fingers! I even remember people by their fingers - how it looks, how it curves, thin or thick, short or long, are the nail tips white or transparent, or anything else interesting about them! It is even more interesting that I can quickly associate "a" finger with someone else's that I know of.

This is one reason why I don't sit in the back seats in the church as my concentration would be on the fingers when people raise their hands to worship. I even learnt some American Sign Language because of my love for fingers... I would say it is the most beautiful language in the universe!

I believe fingers define the personality of one's true self. Even the facial expressions can deceive but fingers never. To tell you the truth I am yet to see fingers that are uninteresting which makes me believe every one has something good in them.

The most handsome fingers I have seen are my Papa's. They were kind, gentle, artistic and well made. As he would clean a chicken or fish or cut a jack fruit I would sit and watch his beautiful fingers. I would imagine his fingers made the things taste better. In fact Papa's fingers were the last thing I touched for my final farewell...

My Chithiema's (Aunt) thumb bends over backwards, when we were little she used to feed us rice and her fingers made the food very delicious... Akka's are the softest I have seen... you guessed it right, she hardly works! Her nails are the shiniest - naturally... My brother Delightson's fingers are the most innocent looking fingers... Cousin Jacinth's are baby like and they remind me of the childhood spent together. Amma's fingers are plump and very generous, they always give, give, give ...

The most beautiful fingers I have seen are my daughter Sharon's. It is so stylish, long and elegant. They are very strong and at the same time very slender too. Very lady like and sophisticated..., she plays drums and basket ball and the fingers play along...

The most hard working fingers I have noticed are my Grandma's - Papa's Mom. We could see the carbon from the wood burning oven she used, on her finger tips, we could see the lines of her palm very clearly, they were old and frail yet long and very strong...

My husband's and Joshua's fingers and toes match picture perfect. Rachel's toes are just like mine... I often say God used the same mold for our fingers and toes respectively.

My fingers I would say are hard working and creative, my favorite are my little fingers (pinkies) -they curve in the tip and wouldn't stand straight... My friends say it brings me luck - may be it does!

Fingers are special just like the people they belong to... I am glad I know so many of them...

Excellent revelation! I too have this habit of watching and observing the fingers and toes of the other persons to gauge their personality! (You can see a related post of mine here: http://mkjadhav.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!4D21555B2155BF3C!305.entry)

Wonderful thought out, Hephziba. Thanks for inducing in me some kind of nostalgia! *SMILE*
