In Ann’s posting she says that the basic symbols for air work should be changed to accommodate children’s questions. I feel this is not a strong enough reason to change the system.
Re: Lucy’s examples 2a-2d. “Appropriate” would mean that the symbol would be read differently in different cultures. It is better to have the plain line (my Ex. a below) mean “any movement.” There is no symbol for “appropriate,” so it should be glossarized until one is found.
Therefore, my Ex. b below indicates “any movement ending in any support,” making examples 2a-2d in Lucy’s posting superfluous.
