Sometimes we put in a lot more effort into things than needed. We're in a constant state of over-thinking, over-analyzing, and this comes out in movements that are tense and rigid in even the most everyday activities, say like opening a door.
If you look at artists when they're in the flow, their hands are active and strong, yet light. I know a cartoonist with big, beefy hands but when he picks up a pencil, his paws are light and almost child-like as he works his magic on paper. You can see this with musicians, like this pianist Alice Sara Ott. I hope you enjoy listening to her interpretation and watching her 'mojo' hands. And to my American friends and students, wishing you a lovely and peaceful Thanksgiving.
