Hi Natasha -
Take a look at the attached diagram. This is the Front View of the  
Side of the Hand. The hand is parallel to the Wall Plane in both  
cases. The hand is also parallel to your chest.

SignWriting is written on planes. Sometimes we view the hand from the  
Front View, because we can see it directly in front of us, or it feels  
like it is directly in front of us, and other times we view it from  
overhead (I will show you this next message)...

In this attached diagram, the hand is parallel to the Front Wall, and  
we are seeing it from the Front View
