Words and Critters

I'm not only joining but hoping to cheer on other participants for Words for Wednesday as well. 

I'm also joining SATURDAY'S CRITTERS

The first image offered by Words for Wednesday
struck a creative process the moment I saw it!
Work and life got in the way until this morning,
so I'm a bit late.

There are so many thoughts drumming 
 through my thoughts.

Real drums.

Yet mostly what springs to mind are the hands that pound away
in various grooves and set so many beats.

I knew I was headed in the right tempo.

The human brain is a funny thing:
it's very susceptible to tempo and melody.
You put the right words to it
and it becomes very influential.
Ray Stevens

Words always matter.

Our hands,
Can hold mini basketballs of course.

Hands guide horses.

Hands are perfect for birds.

Paws like hands are great for protecting clean laundry.

Holding on for dear life!

Protective hand gear sometimes crucial. 

We find only one tool,
neither created nor invented
but perfect;
the hand of man.
Julio Ramon Ribeyro

Our hands also

Lead and direct.

Pump water.


and make funny gestures!

and take many selfies along the way.

Control your own future.
Put your future in good hands. Your own.
Mark Victor Hansen

I'm going to leave you with this eloquent quote by Ray Charles

What is a soul?
It's like electricity.
We don't really know what it is,
but it's a force that can light a room.
Ray Charles

Thanks for stopping in and take good care of you.
Enjoy your weekend too.

LOVE your take on that photo of mine. Thank you so much for joining us.
Love the entire post and, despite it being native here, have never had the privilege of a budgy resting on my hand.

Nice collection, Karen.

I'd add maybe for myself - playing piano hands.

Thanks for all your generous comments!

Enjoy the season! Hugs and smiles :)
