This picture was taken while I was on my trip in China in 2005. I came across it today as I was working through old picture files (gah, no more hard drive space left on my computer and I’m having to delete old & unnecessary pics).
We were in a restaurant and an entertainer gave us each a piece of red yarn to tie around our wrists for good luck. Pictured here is my hand, Dora’s hand, and my Mom’s.
I’d totally forgotten about the red yarn until now…Perhaps the threads brought us a bit of luck later as we traveled in dueling taxis across town to reach a night market and we all made it in one piece (despite our driver having driven down the sidewalk part of the way).
I wore the yarn on my wrist until it fell off a few weeks later.
