The General Arrowhead

The Movement Path of the right hand, writes on top of the Movement  
Path of the left hand, creating a blend of the two arrows. This  
creates a General Arrowhead. The blended arrow is neither right nor is both.

Imagine placing your right hand in a can of black paint. It is now  
dripping with black paint.

Imagine placing your left hand in a can of white paint. It is not  
dripping with white paint.

Your two hands move in space. As they move, they paint Movement Paths  
in space. The left hand paints white Movement Paths. The right hand  
paints black Movement Paths.

But what happens when the Right Movement Path paints on top of the  
Left Movement Path?

In those cases, you write a General Arrowhead.

The General Arrowhead never meant Parallel Paths. It always meant  
Blended Paths. There is a difference.

I can show you examples later today....Unfortunately I have to go to  
an appointment again and must run!

Talk to you all later -

Val ;-)
