2c shows palm down

I have trouble understanding the  symbol at  the bottom of # 2. the hand is
level with the floor, right? So there should be a space?
I also can not understand that the palm at the  bottom of # 5 symbol, is
facing the reader.
When we write symbols aren't they written from the signers point of view as
well as reading from the signers point of view?
Also when we write or read from top view one has to write and understand the
symbol as a reader?
Boy, I am getting mixed up!!!!!!!
