[this is good] Hooray!!!
I love her hands up in the "I feel free" gesture!!!

I didn't believe the Iranian government would keep Saberi in prison, given the amount of international pressure placed on them and Obama's willingness to re-establish communications with Iran. But to see her so radiant and happy in that photo brought tears to my eyes.

I also found out by accident that her mother is Japanese. Living in North Dakota!


I wanted to say something else about the hands. Have you noticed how in moments of extreme emotion so many people open up their hands like that?

I mean, you see lots of very religious people doing it during "worship".

And at concerts. When I hear wonderful, awesome music I instinctively hold my palms out.....

My theory is that we have little energy receptors in our palms, so it's another way to receive strong emotional signals. :)

As you were. ;)


What a wonderful photo!!!  The joy on her face tells a story.

I think your theory is right! But rather than absorbing energy, they release negative energy. So during concerts & the like, we subconsciously open our pals to release all negative energy and have it drowned out by the good energies around.

Actually, I think that's also the idea behind the namaste - we keep our palms closed while greeting someone so that we won't pass our negative energies onto them. I'm not sure though.


That makes sense, too!


[this is good] Beautiful smile, very inspiring picture. Although personally I'll be holding my breath for her until she sets foot in the U.S. I can't imagine how tense it must be for her, even now.

This is marvelous.  I didn't think she had a hope.

All this talk about hands and fingers reminds me of a quote from 'It's A Wonderful Life', when George says to Mary:

"I'll give you the moon, Mary...Then you can swallow it, and it'll all dissolve see, and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair..."
