Writing Prompt #63

I have a thing for hands.  I’m drawn to them.  They have the ability to offer great kindness or undue harm.  They can offer aid as quickly as to refuse it.  I find it surprising that emotion can be felt (and shown) in the actions hands take, and I appreciate when a filmmaker chooses to focus on them.  Joe Wright, who directed Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, has effectively done this in both films.

Happy Writing!

*I can absolutely not draw, and the images I share are the property of their respective owners.  I appreciate when I learn who the artist is so that I can give proper credit where it is due.
