Again, the power of the open hand...

Just as some in the US regard Reagan as a hero, in Russia there are those who would regard Gorbachev as a traitor. Glasnost and Perestroika were Gorbachev's attempt to remove the heavy fist of imperialism. To bring things into perspective, there is nothing more powerful than the open hand.

My nephew Logan is traveling in Cambodia with his ukelele. His strings play upon the heart and have opened passages that are closed to most. Music is a disarming force. He sent me this video as evidence of the wisdom of the hands. He said that wherever he goes there are street musicians but these blind musical warriors had an arresting effect on him. I had not known that by simply placing open hands on braille, passages could be read (and felt). Where there is impairment of any of the senses, the open hand can take up the slack.

Make, fix and create...
