Thailand Hand

If I was right-handed we'd be looking at my lovely  engagement ring, but I've already told that story.  The scar on my wrist is from when I broke my hands and arms (yes, plural.  never go rollerblading down a hill where large dogs may be running off leash).  It looks the same on both hands.  People always think it's carpal tunnel surgery.  I used to jokingly call them blonde suicide scars, then I realized that wasn't very funny.  I've stopped.

If you study Spanish (like I do) you're probably familiar with Marina Dias and Ben Curtis's 'Notes in Spanish'.  If not, check it out.  In one of their podcasts, Ben tells the story of being in Bangkok and getting scammed at a Gem Shop.  I'd listened to it before I went on this trip, but bought the ring anyways.  I just liked it.

Sorry I haven't checked out your EDiM sketches until today. They are great especially the Hennesey bottle and this hand.

I love your life-drawing breakthrough, both paintings and prose.
