Self Portrait Tuesday: Personal History 2

SPT: Personal History 2

As a teenager I discovered that the professed ability to read palms was a great ice breaker!

Gee, is it that easy? :)

Tee hee -- I always wondered about the girl I'd embarassed in front of the class by saying she'd have no marriage but 2 children - I do know she had the first one whilst still underage... but I don't know how accurate the rest of it was!

I LOVE this! Are you writing a book, using all these great illustrations? You should be!

A reference to "the book" again... synchronicity?

My 11-year-old grandson got a book on Wizardry for Christmas and professed an ability to read palms the other day. He was doing just fine with mine, stating that I was highly intelligent, etc., until he got to the phrase, "...and you will die a slow and painful death." At that point, I told him to go read someone else's palm. Ha ha... I was only slightly encouraged by the fact that he said this same phrase to everyone else whose palm he read. Hope springs eternal.

Are those faces on the fingertips you? That's a neat effect.

Caroline said...

Rebekah - thanks - I'm not writing a book... yet...

Nan - I know, maybe I'll have to start taking the idea of a book seriously... it sounds like your grandson has got half the idea but not the whole - I found it much better if I told everyone a different story... but if he keeps it up when he's at the age when he needs an excuse to hold a girls hand then the lines do all start seeming to say the same thing - "I see romance and a new person in your life... "

Rose - yes, thanks - my husband has told me that they don't show up properly on his laptop - too subtle for once!

This is a great image! Love the colours and subtlety of the faces. And the way the words trace the lines on the hands. So cool!

Love the faces on the finger-tips.
Each one an individual.

I saw a face on one finger tip, it is wonderful.

Was a good excuse to hold a guy's hand, one of my very flirty gal pals made the most use of it with the guys, when we were teens.

I love the imagery

Palms are great ice breakers, it depends on how well you squeeze them.

I saw the faces!! My palms have been read many times and all had the same correct reading ... so far .....

merlinprincesse said...

I'm a palm reader too. And I read that... you should wash your hands... ;o) Joking... I see the faces and they are really nice! Cool idea!

I love this photo...great idea. I have been cruising some new blogs tonight and it is always good to come across a familiar one. Your blog feels very inviting to me.

Caroline said...

Sorry about the delay in answering here - I was having difficulties getting blogger to accept comments from me (again!)

Amy - thanks - I'm not doing the AW this time around as I've done it several times and these days have my own variations on it that I do. I'm glad that you are doing it - its a fabulous way of opening up!

Alexª - thank you!

Shane - and thank you too.

the agams - wow a collective persona! - Hadar thank you and you were welcome.

GG - there are faces on each - I'm glad you could see at least one! And yes I used it as way to hold hands - I revived the skill when I was trying to get together with Jim!

Kim Carney - thank you

Tony Larocca - exactly! tee hee

Anonymous - you are brave - I've never let anyone read mine!!!
