Hands are to the body what eyes are to the face. A touch-point. A window into a person. Catch their eye, then touch their hand. Hands tell tales of battles lost and won, and hint at a person's personality. Are they nervous, outgoing, strong, compassionate or confused even? People wearing sunglasses who's hands are in their pockets have an air of mystery about them. What are they hiding? What do they have to tell?

Hands come plain, or adorned in all manner of polish and jewelry. I prefer mine plain, regularly washed, and suitably surrounded by a shirt cuff. Seems a bit vanilla, but then again I am hardly a man of mystery.
