    Thanks Hilly! Really love the stark reality of yours. Reminds me in some ways of the short story Cat Person from The New Yorker.

    What a horrendous experience, Hilly. Incredible to think it really happened. You write it in a way that makes it totally believable. I’m glad you’re still with us!

    Oh, it brings it all back (so to speak!) - the only time I've ever been seasick was on a ferry back from France... Great writing!
