  2. Next sign “morning” by bending the elbow of one arm, leaving the arm parallel to your body, and resting the finger tips in the crook of the elbow of your second arm. With the second hand, bring the flat and palm up hand from under the first arm up and towards you – like the sun coming up over the horizon.
  3. Put together, this is a Good – Morning!
