Focus on Life: Week Week 18

Week 18: In Your Hands

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand,
you will see your parents
and all generations of your ancestors.
All of them are alive in this moment.
Each is present in your body.
You are the continuation of each of these people.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

I had no idea what to do with this weeks' photo prompt. I did like the quote that I found while searching for inspiration (see above) and added the old family photos to represent all the generations that have gone before us and are clearly visible In Your Hands. Honour and remember them, for they are a part of each of us.

To see the photos of the other participants, check out the links below...

  2. A brilliant interpretation of the prompt!! Love the quote and the photos :) x

  3. Great interpretation of the challenge. I made an art quilt once in which I wrote, "I am all that I am because of my ancestors." We owe them so much.

  4. I was also looking for the hands of my ancestors! Great old photos.

  6. I love your interpretation of this week's prompt! The photos are perfect!
