Tipping the hat

I don't know about the timing; I think it's okay . . . but I think the arrows would look better if they were both hooked in the same direction.  Unless the bow travels from left to right as well as back and forth?  To me, the end position of the "forward" arrow and the beginning position of the "back" arrow are two different positions as they're written.Just one more comment, and I'm probably way off base here . . . I feel like the shoulder movement in the "tip of the hat" actually begins with the head; that it's more of an extra-large head nod than a bow from the shoulders or waist.  I know I'd find the head movement easier to read, too, since everything else is up on the top of the head.  When I first looked at the sign, I didn't even notice the shoulders (seriously! you were asking about the torso movement and I had to specifically look for it!); but I know I'd notice a head-nod arrow.  Like I say, I'm probably totally wrong so feel free to correct me!KJTo: sw-l at majordomo.valenciacc.eduSubject: [sw-l] Tipping the hatFrom: CWren at doe.k12.ga.usDate: Wed, 11 Jul 2007 14:01:26 -0400
I have timing issues with this sign.
 The baby-X touches the forehead, then arcs forward.  AT the
same time, the torso bends forward.  Then the baby-X arcs back, at
the same time the body bends back into upright position, ending with a
second touch on the head.  Is this writing conveying the sequence
