THE OPEN HAND | BY ROBERT CAISLEY

Are you a generous person? “The Open Hand” is a meditation on the nature of generosity. Allison does not accept gifts. Not even on her birthday. Not even from her fiancé. So when she finds herself without her wallet and unable to pay the tab for an expensive lunch with a friend, it is with great reluctance that she accepts the generosity of a total stranger.
