Re: define space

Hey Matty Firstly, glad to see someone is still around. Secondly, thanks for wading through this and even liking it, what pretty sure it would put people off. Thirdly, the commas are force of habit and should not be there. Lastly, yes I was aware that the end was maybe one set of lines too far. Good...

As examples. This a sweet scene but it does not need...
