Cling to the truth of what IS over fictional future nightmares.
Cling to the truth that the odds of all your worries coming true is nearly impossible.
Cling to the truth that you could make it even if you were unprepared.
Cling to the truth of what you love about yourself [apart from the affirmation or loyalty of others].
Cling to the truth that worrying subtracts from feeling the blessings of the now.
Cling to the truth that your maker will never abandon you.

As a child I was fascinated with dance and how body lines can create meaning. Now as a writer and calligraphy artist, I have come to appreciate how the simplest line or a single, powerful word can nearly tell a whole story.
"Enneahands" uses imperfect, organic shapes and continuous line to tell the beautifully flawed but neverending story of our human struggles. In the final print, all the hands in their uniqueness come together to create balance and synergy as a stronger complete circle.
