Sixty Eight.

I've had my fingerprints taken on three separate occasions. Each time was as a prerequisite to sitting for the bar examination in each of the three states in which I'm admitted. It's part of the character & fitness investigation that we lawyers are required to subject ourselves to so that the states can decide whether we are the type of person they want practicing law in their state. Funny how much our fingerprints are used by the government to identify us. And amazing how well it works. How unique each set of fingerprints actually are.

 

As part of our week one challenge in Project SoulPancake, I spent some time really closely examining and admiring my fingerprints. I've never really done that before. They seem pretty normal to me. Though I did notice that both of my ring fingers have prints that form bullseyes. The rest of my fingers are more swirly, but those ring fingers are perfect little bullseyes. And that kind of made me smile. Little circles of art right on my fingertips that I'd never even noticed.

 

Have you ever taken the time to look at yours?
