{April 19, 2011}   Weekly Photo Challenge:Lines

The challenge this week is not finding pictures of lines but rather, figuring out what photos to take or include. There are lines in everything and there are many types of lines.

There are lines on a paper, there are lines we wait patiently in(or not!), lines in Music, rows and columns are basically lines, we fish with a fishing rod that has a line on it, as kids we are told to “Walk in a straight line”, lines to rehearse, we talk through telephone lines….lines are just a fundamental part of life.

So what do I pick? I don’t want to just take a boring photo of the same old, same old. I want to twist things up, make it different. The other day as I was thinking about Lines, in general, I looked down at the palm of my hand. There are lines on my palm as on everyone else’s BUT no lines on any one person’s palms are exactly alike! You could look at everyone’s hands in the world and no one’s would be the same. Just like fingerprints which are used to identify us. Fingerprints are basically a series of lines unique to only us.

The palm of my left hand....with its lines unique to only me!

A lot of people believe the lines in our hands are not just simply identifying features but that they also tell about our past, present and future. I’m sure you have heard of palm reading before. I’m not so sure I necessarily believe in palm reading myself. Palm reading and horoscopes are an iffy thing for me but I do admit that it’s a fun thing to read them. As a Christian, I believe our lives are already destined by God and a horoscope or a psychic can not tell us what the future holds. I still look at fortune cookies for fun, though and I look at horoscopes occasionally. Sometimes what they have to say can actually be an interesting quote or good advice and who’s to say that it’s not something God intended for me to hear at the particular moment?

Anyways, since I brought up palm reading, I decided to try to check my palms online and see what came up, just for fun! If you’re interested, here’s the site I went to!

I’ll post my report at the end of this post…Some of the things it reported actually seem to fit me but others, I don’t quite agree with! In fact, some of it is contradictory, but I’m also not a professional palm reader and I may not have answered things right because it’s hard to see some of the lines clearly enough.

First, here are some other pictures of “lines”.
