mottled hands
veins pushing thin skin
crone’s reward

And beautiful hand they are; as this reminds me of my mother's hands. Thank you. We just drove through CD last night. Man, you have a lot of snow.

That skin sounds better than mine, all that and dry, too.

Love the fractal!

I agree with Christine, I think of my mom when I think of old hands. Crone doesn't fit with that, though. It is my own hands getting old that bothers me!

because of the sentimentality encapsuled therein ..many thanks..

A reward indeed. I'm almost there.

This gave me goose bumps, not sure I understand them this time though..

Will ponder it more!

Oh the rewards of aging....

The word 'crone' ha negative connotations for me so is juxtaposition with 'reward'is interesting.
