Adam -

Whether it is written from the side view or the front view...doesn't  

We are not talking about a path hiding from the reader's view...we  
are talking about paths that pull the hands in different  
directions..if the pull is right and left, that is two separate  
paths...if the pull is overlapping...that is a general arrowhead...

Here is a diagram...from the side view...does this help a little? The  
second one shows, by the space between the arrow paths, that the two  
hands are separated a bit and moving forward together...but the first  
one shows one hand in front of the other moving forward on the same
