In the latest Project Calm, we’ve been thinking a lot about our hands. Editor Sarah Gane explains: “Our hands really do say so much about ourselves. How we use them to gesticulate, whether we nibble our nails or how we decorate them all speaks volumes.
“Looking down at my own hands, I see short nails, accompanied by an art deco engagement ring and a simple gold wedding band, bought second-hand; an ethical choice, and each with their own history.
“What does that say about me? I’m a down-to-earth, curious woman who loves a story and likes to get stuck in? Not far off!

“But, on a deeper level, our hands say so much more about ourselves. Throughout history, they hold significance in cultures around the world for ceremonies and celebrations. They can also hold the future, as you’ll see in our palmistry feature.
Whether you believe it or not, it’s intriguing to learn about these little lines. I couldn’t resist turning my hand over to investigate!
“Whatever your hands look like, they hold boundless potential. To love, to create and, ultimately, to make a difference in this world. Thanks so much for reading and enjoy the issue!”
