by Dale Copeland, 2015

I'd hurt my hand punching through a board at Taekwon-do, thought a finger might be broken.
But the X-ray was so beautiful, so exciting, I forgot all about the sore hand, and pleaded to have the digital image sent to me.
Isn't it lovely? With the thumb ring so opaque it looks as though it's on top of the hand.
Holding earlier photos, it marks my path through my ages.
