Hi Valerie, Stuart, ... friends

yes I changed it to the way Stuart used to write his name sign - contct
stars above the fist.
By the way - I would vote for this version as well - smile - 

Perhaps it is more kind of feeling. Just as we decide to focus on the thumb
or babyfinger while writing the rotation movement ... 

But there are definitely a couple of sign like "know" and others where a
"design" with contact star above the hand feels better - 

Stefan :-)

Thanks for permission to post your photo ;-)

And there is no standard on this contact-placement issue...

It is your name and of course it should be written as you feel is Stefan, can you change Stuart's name to this please? ;-)
