Three signs using flexing and traveling rotation ;-)

no arguing... just trying to wrap my brain around this.  I have a hard time seeing wrist flex in here when I could put on my old carpel tunnel wrist braces, and still sign this sign...  ::smile::  One recent message got me close to the edge of understanding.  "The hand and arm do not travel"...  

Shoot, I can't get a picture to paste in right.  

If I hold my forearm out straight in front of me, and point my finger out straight, then turn it over so that the palm moves from facing to the side to facing down to the floor, that is a rotation. (like HAPPEN)
If I do everything exactly the same, except my finger is now pointing to the left (at a 90 degree angle to my arm) and the forearm moves exactly as it did above until the finger points down;  thats a wrist flex, because my wrist is =flexed=, not because its flexing?  Position trumps movement?

just trying to comprehend....
