Yes, Valerie,

This is EXTREMELY similar to the beginning I made in
the SignWriter Journal.  My computer has collapsed so
I can only read what you write rather than add my new
stuff right now, but I am quite happy with the
ordering of the spelling.  Starting with either hand
(depending on the handedness of the writer) and then
proceeding by hand shape, orientation (contact if
there is any to begin with), movement to a new
position, including any new contact, new hands (again
depending on the handedness of the writer), is great.
