Our hands show we're able to take action - or they may be bound and tied. Our hands can hold another in friendship - or be balled up in a fist as a sign of aggression. Our hands can be clean - or dirty after a wrongful deed. Our hands can free us - or we can use them to block out reality by covering our eyes, ears, mouths, noses.
What condition and position were your hands in? Who or what were they holding? Pointing at?
