American Sign Language: "active"

"DO" / DOING / "I was doing..."
If you are describing a situation or telling a story in which you want to indicate that general action was taking place, then here is a general version of "DO."  General activity can be shown with this sign.  You hold your hands out in front of you and move them sort of like as if you were kneading dough, but you don't flex the fingers. The movement is all in your shoulders and elbows. (Not the wrists and fingers).

Here is another version. It means more along the lines of "actions."

Also see: "DO"
