Handprints From The Other Side ...

Handprints From The Other Side ...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Photos of my handprints on the big, soft blanket as I folded it ... I  instantly thought of ... handprints from the other side!  Just suppose ... something was on the other side of the blanket as I folded it ... I think I felt something ... try to grab my hand!  Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee


I was making up the bed this morning when ... I began to pay attention to something that caught my attention. I began to ... think. You know how my imagination is! The oddest things spark it, unexpectedly.

We have a beautiful, soft blanket we like to sometimes, sleep under when taking a nap. It's so big, heavy ... that you don't need any other covers with it. I noticed something about the blanket, this morning ... in fact, I've been 'sort of noticing' ... lately.

As I folded the big blanket, I began to see my handprints in it! Handprints on a blanket! All kind of ideas came to mind to write about ... like a scary story ... the curtain of air, handprints pressing through ... such things!

I took photos of our blanket with my handprints ... I might need those handprints one day to write a short story.

She stood watching the air in front of her ... there wasn't anything there, until ... oh my God! Handprints from the other side begin pressing the air to reach her. She reached out, placed her hand on one of the handprints ... she could feel each finger. The hand tried to latch onto hers ...

Handprints from the other side ....


Photos/story are both owned by me, #Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka #Granny Gee. One day I may finish writing a story from the title I just thought of ... #Handprints From The Other Side. One could weave a good story from that!

  1. Sometimes we just don't know what one thinks about when something different comes to us in a way that it doesn't come to someone else. We all experience different things in different ways. Love, Ms. Nancy
