I spent some time yesterday in New York City with the delightful Ellen Goldberg of School of Oracles ( http://www.schooloforacles.com ), having my hands photographed for her upcoming palmistry book. We met at ACA Galleries, and it was so entertaining to me to have my palms and fingers praised extravagantly as being ‘a rare jewel’ in the sense of being ‘a water hand’, denoting psychic ability and whatever else the book will tell us all about (I’ll keep you updated as to title and release date etc.). After their egos were vastly inflated by praise, my elbows and arms were propped on pedestals, literally, to be photographed. The young photographer was very good-natured and understood the Spinal Tap reference of my teeshirt (“Make 11-11-11 Nigel Day”), and in all it was a great, diverting, time. Can’t wait for the book party!
