    I think some of that is printed on the cover of my copy of the book. Thirty pages into her soliloquy and she's drawn breath once.

    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!
