She can't blame that mouse for the queasiness, happens easily at sea. But the metaphor is just great, this works really well for me

"And said nothing." I love Aunt Dorothy. She knows just the right thing (not to) say

It's hard to write about such emotions but you do so beautifully.

Excellent story! It reminds me of a short story I just read called "To Thine Own Self" by my newest favourite author, Julie Booker (From Up, Up, Up, House of Anasi Press). Anyway, congratulations.

I really enjoyed the musical metaphors here.  It feels like Diana, through her illness, has become attuned to much deeper songs, ancient and unending.
