Day 245 : freecell


Sandy: When I want to do something mindless I play FreeCell on my iPad. When I use my left hand to touch the screen I noticed that I use not only my index finger but my thumb, too. At first I wasn’t making good contact on the screen with my index finger and my wrist felt a little stiff when I rotated my left hand clockwise to get the pad of my finger to touch the screen. I also noticed that my brain feels strained. Maybe it’s because it’s trying to operate my left hand and it’s registering it’s movement, with one that it’s not familiar. Even though my left hand isn’t obstructing the view of the screen any more than my right hand does, I’m consciously thinking I have to look over or around my left hand to see the screen. I don’t feel the same when using my right hand, in fact I hardly notice my right hand.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.

    The difference between your artwork now and on Day One is pretty substantial. Just goes to show our parents were right—”practice practice practice.” Darn them!
