Tangling with your non-dominant hand.
Now THAT is a humbling experience. The guest challenger on the Diva's blog this week asked us to just buck up and try it. I think this challenge has come around before and I have passed. I KNOW that my left hand is really weak and the idea that I'd be brave enough to actually POST what happened was just not a very comfortable thought.
But this time I got brave.
This was REALLY hard. I couldn't even get the DOTS in the corners with a pencil! ARRRGH.
First off it took 2-3 times as long.
I thought maybe I'd get better as I went along but what happened was my hand got tired and started cramping up and actually got worse! I tried a little shading but basically had to give that up and picked Rain because it didn't need shading.
My husband has ET (Essential Tremor) and has had for almost his life. In 2011 he had DBS surgery to help with his right hand. But he still struggles with small muscle tasks. I am suddenly VERY aware of what he must go through just to sign his name on his credit card bill. Also someone who has broken an arm or has had a stroke or a tremor.
Well, I challenge you all to try this. You don't have to post it. Just try it. Very enlightening. I picked tinted paper so you maybe would notice it as much. (hahahaha).
