  • I drew this picture last night while I was running virus and malware scans on my computer, and couldn't do any electronic work.

    Today when I look at the picture, I see:

    1. One hand with fingers spread.
    2. One hand with fingers tight.
    3. Hands that are entreating.
    4. Hands that are receiving.
    5. Hands that are giving.

    I wonder if it's possible to be all five at once...
