That is wonderful Valerie, hits just the right amount and the surface symbols make it explicit. It is truly a challenging sign.  I will send pictures of TISLR as soon as i have them developed.

How about this, Charles? I just re-wrote it, using the Surface 
Symbols to show that one hand is in the front of the other...It is 
number 8 in the LIBRAS SignPuddle...although I realize we can go on 
and on with this sign, and it is not perfect yet, at least this gives 
you some feedback!

Enjoy beautiful Brazil! Val ;-)
