Hello SignWriting List!
I hope you all had a good weekend. I enjoyed having a little rest  
from answering email ;-)))

But I am happy to be back too.

And thank you for this excellent video Lucyna.

This sign for ANIOL in Polish Sign Language does NOT use Wrist  
Circles. In the video, the circles are from the whole arm...the wrist  
joint is not doing the circle.

A Wrist Circle symbol is only used when the arm never moves, and only  
the Hand moves, from the Wrist joint. So you need Arm-Circle  
symbols...Here is how I would write it. No need for contact stars,  
since I see no actual touching in the video. I will post information  
about Circle symbols next message...

Notice in my writing, that the arrowheads in the circle are placed at  
the exact spot where the hands start to move in the circle...The  
arrowheads are always placed where the circle begins....see attached
