I have improved the document. See attachment...
I also changed the colours round, that was Maureens idea,
since it is probably easier to remember that Red is
Right...

>> Hi Valerie, hi Suzanne -
>> Yes I like this kind of movement writing a lot. One
>> sequence made me wonder
>> ...Suzanne - do you want the reader move the hands like
>> this? - diagonally
>> forward and back ...
>>
>> ...  Or do you want to move the right fist forward -
>> staying in front and
>> moving the left hand afterwards at the same distance
>> (both
>> hands in front of
>> the body) ...

>> Best wishes
