I’ve posted previously about how I find the evidence of an artists’s hands in their work to be inspirational. I spent the lion’s share of yesterday writing a tutorial on how to make an ultimate storage cart (coming on Friday over at Lillyella). My twitter friends were regaled with quips about how much I loved looking at pictures of my husband’s forearms while I was editing the photos. Yes, I do find them to be very attractive…but I think it goes deeper than that.
Andrew is professional trombonist, and a full time University administrator (he’s Dean of the U of Redlands School of Music). For most people, this would be more than enough. But he still finds time to make things with his hands… fulfilling my wishes for useful furniture and beautiful floors. His ability to do practical things was one of the qualities that made me fall in love with him over 19 years ago, and while staring at pictures of those hands yesterday I was reminded of how incredibly lucky I am.
