    Thanks for the information on your eyes. My father was blind from his mid life on, so I'm particularly sensitive to people with eye problems. God be with you. I hope everything turns out well.

    That's the plan but I can't say when. I'm totally busy with academic and family duties, so I find it hard to think about it in detail At the moment I only have some rough ideas about the plot, but nothing absolutely conclusive If I succeed I'll let you know

    And thanks for the friendship request!
