How did I become interested in telling fortunes? I am asked this question frequently; I find it difficult to answer, but I recall a couple of years ago reading a book about Jeane Dixon, the Washington, D.C. seer who divined and tried to prevent the assassination of President Kennedy. Apparently when Mrs. Dixon was very young she was taken to a gypsy fortune-teller who was astounded at the young girl’s palm, for it gave every indication that she would become a great forseer of the future. Mrs. Dixon still has and uses a crystal ball given to her by the gypsy at that time.
