This "hand" reached out to me as I walked. No it did not want me to shake it. It was not asking for a handout. It was not waving hi, nor asking me to put some money in the parking meter. It was just one of the many gloves and mitts that appear in odd places this time of year - on fences, tree branches, fire hydrants... Lost. Looking for its owner. Looking for its mate.
If you lost this glove, let me know - I know where it is ;-)
