[photograph] "WATCHING A SNAKE FAIRY CHANGING HIS SKIN" (With handwriting:
"They watched me while I changed my skin.") [from THE FAIRYLAND AROUND US
by Opal Stanley Whiteley, Typed and Proofed by David Caruso, 1999]

She watched him while he changed his skin. He watched her while she

him while he changed her skin.

There's something about this skin-changing. There's something about shape-

ing. This is a talisman of this reading and a magic-card.

Cut out the magic-card from the screen and carry it with you alway and you
will be skin-changing of everyone and everyone will be skin-changing of
