  5. The English version seems to have at least two points of view as far as I can tell: Did she suffer or did she beat? I wonder what the Gaelic "shock" offers ... Interesting and dark. I like it.

    Best wishes

  6. grandma's face
    twisted by a stroke

    You've caught a real moment, John.
