I n a three-part series delving into the psychological netherworld of Houston folk we adore, by way of their handwritten chicken scratches, grapholo- gist Alice Weiser deciphers their written word; she has spent years puzzling over dotted I's and crossed T's, and nothing escapes her. We have our subjects send Ms. Weiser a few paragraphs, and she returns an enlight- ening profile, something she's been doing for decades for the courts. This month, Weiser puts her handwriting analysis powers to work deciphering what makes heralded restaurateur Tony Vallone tick. After getting past a pomodoro stain or two, Weiser delivers a spot-on analysis. Vallone has not seen the results — until now. James Brock Alice Weiser: The way you fill a piece of paper is the way you fill your space in life. It is obvious that Tony Vallone has many irons in the fire and does not miss a thing. You can tell this by the way his message covers the entire piece of paper. Marginally speaking, the left margin on the page represents the present, or where we are now in life. We have total control of the left margin; the right margin, however, represents the future, or the unknown. A tendency to cling to the left margin de- notes an individual who is comfortable with where he is in life and is not a huge risk taker, venturing into the unknown. Vallone is extremely creative and has incredible joie de vivre, symbolized by the intensity of his writing. Though he is aware of his surroundings, he doesn't lose focus on the project at hand. He either loves or dislikes immensely, be it people, fine wines, rich foods, or other delicacies. He holds very firmly to what he ar- dently believes and might be considered a tad stubborn. Take a look at his "t." When the "t" is separated to the point that one might insert an upside-down "v" in it (envision a person standing in front of you with legs separated in a firm stance), a touch of stubbornness is part of the mix. Vallone will listen to all sides of the story, but at one point will say, "I have heard everything, but the bank is now closed to deposits." He will forgive his enemies, but remember their names. You will never find a better friend, unless you take advantage of his friendship. It takes a great deal to shake his trust, but it takes an extremely long time for him to get over a breach of trust. Vallone's signature, which is exactly like the rest of his script, states: "What you see is what you get." 98 JAY TOVAR HANDWRITING ANALYSIS "HE HOLDS VERY FIRMLY TO WHAT HE ARDENTLY BELIEVES AND MIGHT BE CONSIDERED A TAD STUBBORN. TAKE A LOOK AT HIS "T." '— Alice Weiser WRITING'S THE ON THE WALL
