"Our destiny is written in the hand."

"Using our hands grounds us — in work and in relationship. As we create something, hopefully beautiful, with our hands, we are transforming our moral and social senses. We evolve; we change. We notice things that we passed over the day before: the curve in a sidewalk to make way for a tree in the boulevard, the purl of a scarf, the transition of a capital that greets the ceiling. We observe the mundane and see it anew." Renate Hiller

I found this really inspiring lady by chance, while browsing the internet. Its very interesting to hear her experience and the importance of handwork as a mindfulness practice. You can watch the video here.
