SHA Discrimination? December 2, 2008 6:24 pm \ 4 Comments \ by terry 70-448 pdf 70-450 Posted in: Symmetrical Hand Arrangements
Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
This was sung in that small Congregationalist church in rural Pennsylvania on that memorable morning a little over a hundred years ago when this issue was settled. Any and all may undertake SHA. It is not an aesthetic indulgence for cliques and coteries, but a “simple human pursuit.”
All and all HANDS may undertake, and as marc so elegantly pointed out, it is a SIMPLE HUMAN pursuit, unfettered by adornments, distractions, and accouterments. Indeed, terry, all are welcome. It is the symmetry of the arrangement that we strive for, not the symmettry of the hands.
This is exactly the break from SHA preconception that I am striving for. Fear not the conventional! Shatter assumptions! Huzzah, Terry!
Ah, how could I have not remembered to include Gordon Palm in those breaking from SHA preconception?
Thanks to all for your wonderful words of wisdom: “a simple human pursuit”. It will make many in my position feel human again.
