"How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”
Henry David Thoreau

Everyone is unique. That includes an individual’s paw. For instance, my hand has the appearance of a river running from left to right across the base of my fingers. Below the river consists a series of drawn out and elongated veins that remind me of a systematic highway. Like a desert, the wrinkles and hair on my phalanges remind me of sand dunes. Located right below this landmark is my hand’s “Nile River.” The callous on my hands stand as a symbol of my dimwitted negligence, seeing as I don’t wear gloves when I lift weights. My knuckles resemble the Aures Mountain Range of Northern Africa. My hand reminds me of a map of Africa. When I look at my hand, I am dragged on an enchanting safari through this miraculous world
