Portable Stones

by Orla Barry

A girl escapes from the city; she ends up camping in an abandoned graveyard. In the silence there, she becomes involved in a kind of linguistic dream world. She becomes an outsider. She hears voices. These voices carry her through time, they escape the island and cross the sea to meet her, they are memory carriers.
