Hello Shane and Midori!
THANK YOU, Shane, for posting some SignWriting. You have made me very  
very happy!

And now I want to ask you both...Which sign is more accurate? The one  
on the left, is writing movement twice up-diagonally, but the  
emphasis is on the up-up. The sign on the right is writing the same  
movement, but instead the emphasis is even...up-down-up...

Left sign...up-up
Right sign...up-down-up

A different feeling to the movement...I would actually pronounce  
(produce) them differently...
