My grandmother.

My mother.

Me.

Handed down is a set of three etchings – portraits of myself, my mother and my grandmother showing only our hands.

Our hands are quite similar, yet each quite changed by age and circumstance. Now that I have seen them so clearly, I will, no doubt, constantly examine my own for the next change. Will it be caused by time, or will something else come along to make a difference?

Our hands are always changing. How I choose to use mine will map out changes as clearly as my genes.
