|Prompt: Hold your hands out in front of you, palms down. Imagine that you have a total of six strings tied around your fingers. Write about the objects that are dangling from the strings.
Left Pinky: Attached to this string would be a very small cornucopia. You know this saying: She has more ____ in her little finger than he does in his whole body. The cornucopia is a symbol for abundance. When I am giving thanks for all my blessings, I also throw out to the universe that I have an abundance of many great things (love, health, happiness, patience, finances, peace/tranquility, love of life). What better reminder of my abundance than a cornucopia. Did you know: The Cornucopia (Latin, ‘horn of plenty’), a spiraling, woven basket overflowing with an abundance of produce, is an ever-present symbol of harvest prosperity. The symbol dates back to an ancient tale of the Nymph Amalthea, who, as a reward from the infant Zeus for a meal of Goat’s milk, was given an enchanted goat’s horn which gave whatever one wished for. The cornucopia became a ubiquitous symbol of fortune and plenty, and was associated with many Goddesses, including Fortuna, the goddess of good fortune, and Ceres, Goddess of agriculture.
Left Ring Finger: Attached to this string would be a photograph of my daughter. This is a constant reminder that my daughter is of utmost importance to me - she's my heart. Did you know: before medical science discovered how the circulatory system functioned, people believed that a vein of blood ran directly from the third finger on the left hand to the heart. Because of the hand-heart connection, they chose the descriptive name vena amori, Latin for the vein of love, for this particular vein.
Left Middle: Attached to this string would be a notebook. A place to write down thoughts, ideas, dreams, criticisms, to-do lists, and observations. I can write whatever I like, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Want to be mean and disrespectful when you read someone you don't agree with, then my notebook is attached to the correct finger to give you my nonverbal response. Did you know: In Western countries, extending the middle finger (either on its own, or along with the index finger in the United Kingdom) is an offensive and obscene gesture, colloquially known as "flipping the bird", "flipping someone off", or simply "giving the finger". The gesture is usually used as a form of insult to the person it is directed to.
Left index finger: Attached to this string would be my iPod shuffle. I love my music - so many songs to listen to, so many delicious voices caressing my ears. This is the appropriate finger for my iPod because like music the index finger is very important. Did you know: the index finger is usually the most dextrous and sensitive finger of the hand.
Left thumb: Attached to my thumb would be a very small drum. The drum is a reminder that it's okay to be yourself, to be different, to march to the beat of your own drum. The thumb is different than our other digits as it is the only one that is opposable. Did you know: Primatologists and hand research pioneers J. Napier and P. Napier defined opposition as: "A movement by which the pulp surface of the thumb is placed squarely in contact with - or diametrically opposite to - the terminal pads of one or all of the remaining digits."
Right ring finger: This string would hang from a ring and from the string would be a blue ink pen that wrote beautifully. I write more neatly with blue ink than any other color - well, when writing with ball point pens that is. I've found a couple of blank ink pens that wrote like the words were just flowing from my mind to the paper with nothing in between. Did you know: When a right-handed person wears rings, the left hand is the yin and the right hand is the yang. A ring on the yin hand represents receiving a certain skill or trait. A ring on the yang hand represents giving those skills or traits to others. For a left-handed individual, the right hand is the yin and the left hand is the yang.
