for some reason, this gesture was very comforting to me in the dream. i really can't think of why. oh, well . . . an association i *just* hile writing this was to my father's hands. i noticed at a young age that the color of his palm was much different than that of the back of his hand (the back being much darker). does this mean that i prefer to identify with the lighter part of his hand? or does it mean that because Ghandi is showing me the lighter part of his hand, which represents me(?), i somehow want to be like Ghandi? wow, that last one was a stretch . . . but there is definitely something there.
