Ending on a happy note! First time that's happened in a while. Things pick up from here. Not quite so broody. Sigrid is gonna keep Shanku on her toes.
Tried some "worm's eye" perspective. Not my forte. "Bird's Eye" I can be kind of pleased with. Characters at worm's eye just come out stunted looking when I do it.
Lots of research for this chapter. Learned some cool stuff (more teas for herbal remedies), learned some scary stuff (way back when, if you couldn't afford or didn't want a new baby, just leave it outside and let it die).
Most days I'm surpised the pages turn out as well as they do. My kid thinks the pencil and rulers are irresistable.
