everything is beautiful

this mole hand was a challenge for me–just too anthropomorphically creepy for this blog. even down to the sort-of fingernails. yyyyeeeuuuhhhh.

but then i see beauty too. i think about the perfect mole-ness of it. the millenia that went into adapting it perfectly to the task of excavating shallow tunnels. the satisfaction of another inch of soil cleared. the happiness of being a mole in possession of this set of claws, and nothing to do for the rest of the day but dig.

    At first I thought this was the long-lost hand of a porcelain doll, but then I realized a thumb would have made it six-fingered. Probably not!
