you shape your hands, and your hands shape you.

language takes much of its shape from how hands interact with the world.

 “The brain points the arm and fingers as accurately as it points the eye. In the orbit and at the shoulder the eye and the humerus are free to rotate or swing in front to back inside to side planes and also around their long axes. And in both cases there is a precise arrangement of muscles aligned and attached to power each of these movements.”

Frank Wilson, Delight of the Hand
