In My Hand, a Sprout

Every morning I like to come in and spend a half hour or so in my newsreader software. It’s kind of like reading the morning paper, but less depressing.

This morning, while reading our “neighborhood blog,” I stumbled across a link to a yoga studio that I might be interested in. Seems nice, although I immediately started complaining to Kandace about the clip art photography of someone holding a plant sprout in their hands. I’ve just seen this kind of graphic way too many times. What does it mean, anyway?!?

Not ten minutes later, I stumble across a strangely familiar look in a site linked from the CSS Remix web gallery. But it’s different, right? This time they’re only using one hand. Has this plant sprouted there, right in that hand, from nothing? Is this the hand of God here?

Truly a tired, overworked image.
