  1. The image is intriguiging of the eye in the hand. I don`t really know about hamsas, and makes me curious…Just re-visited your story! Fun how all the synchronicities unfold…and I am sure continue to do so even now as you sleep:)) I love the part where you meet the lady in the red tunic! Happy adventures in wake and in sleep!!
