  1. I truly enjoyed listening to the story on Lightspeed. My own sixty-ish hands are embellished with (one of them) -2 small cat scratches -in the process of healing. No lives spots yet…but perhaps they will come. At this point in my life-the story -the reflections in it-resonated with me…and rang true. Thank you for this story Mr. Ballantyne.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to let me know how you felt about the story. I think it must be one of the biggest compliments to a writer, knowing that their story has touched someone. All the best, Tony
