Speaking Italian

I've always had the feeling that I used my hands more when I'm speaking Italian than when I speak English, or Croatian.

But I have also thought maybe I just feel like I'm using them more, since I'm aware that Italians use their hands more, and therefore I become more self-aware when I am using them, giving myself the impression that I use them more, but not really. (Yes, I tend to over-analyze things.)

After seeing these pictures from the retreat where I spoke, I'm thinking that it probably isn't my imagination...

You DO look elegant when speaking! Ane "the hands" are necessary and beautiful!
