Hi again everyone. Here is my post for the ‘Hand’ challenge this week.
Now that my eyesight has been beautifully restored to perfection over the past few weeks, following the successful cataract operations, I am returning to my Wednesday seat at the piano in our local shopping mall.
I’m so grateful to my eye surgeon for the excellent job he did, so that I can now see both near and far without having to wear either contact lenses or glasses.
Each part of our bodies has such an important function, and to play the piano, I not only need my eyes, but also my hands, so here are a couple of photos of my hands doing a bit of practising before I go and entertain the lunchtime shoppers today.
I expect I’ll see quite a few regulars who always come to greet me. Last time I played, the elderly woman who I’ve nicknamed “the muffin lady,” came for a little chat and a big hug. She lives by herself, and supplements her pension, by baking for the coffee shop in the centre. I was so touched when she handed me a bag containing two freshly baked scones for hubby and myself. I really have some lovely interactions with people whilst my hands are flying over those piano keys. 😉
Have a great day, everyone. Chat again soon.
So glad your surgery went well. It really is a miracle that they can do such things. I love the story about “The Muffin Lady.”
Thanks so much, Naomi. 😉
Hi AD, perfect sight to go with the perfect piano playing hands 🙂
Thanks, Chris. 😉
I have to admit, when I meet people, their hands is one of the things I look at – you can tell a lot about a person by their hands…
Lovely pics AD 😉
Thanks, 68. This is true. You don’t have to be a great detective to see people’s everyday lives reflected in their hands.
I’m sure those regulars are really happy to see you’re back ad.
Thanks, Hopestar. Yes they were. 😉 Hugs xx
Music – a wonderful use of hands!
Indeed. I have to agree with you there. 😉
Beautiful, so beautiful… I always wished to play piano… Thank you dear AD, it was wonderful post. Love, nia
Thanks, nia. I’m so happy that I learned how to play the piano when I was a child. 😉
I can listen to forever… 🙂 You are welcome. Love, nia
Ooh how sweet of the muffin lady,there are still nice people out there,how I wish to hear you play the piano,the soothing sound. 🙂 nice post as always
Yes, she is your typical sweet old lady who I just can’t help hugging every time we meet. 😉
when we were children the cataract op was major because they had to wait to collect the corneas or whatever from dead people who donated them, now its so common and so successful with the manufactured ones, many more have their sight back.
Yes, The invention of new synthetic intraocular lenses, have revolutionised ctaract surgery. The ones I have are monovision, and also correct for astigmatism. They also protect against uv light, so I hardly need sunglasses.
wow, that makes them a real boon
How wonderful that your sight has been restored to normal. And what a perfect entry for the challenge! You do have beautiful hands AD!
Thanks so much, Madhu. 😉
No hands, No beautiful music. Fantastic idea for WPC “Hands”this time.

YEA! It’s wonderful that you have your eyesight back. The miracles of medicine and surgery. Glad you are once again playing music for the crowds. I love the sound of the paino. What a great gift to have and share with others.
