Progress Report

Briefly, I've made no progress.

I began a tale, beginning a few years after Samuel's birth, but abandoned it after a few hundred words. I've been reading about the beginnings of railroads in NSW and Queensland and am thinking about Gordy's great-grandfather, who emigrated to Australia in the 1870s. This would be historical fiction.

Today being St. Lucy's Day, I'm hoping for 'lux in tenebris' (John 1.5).

The next episode posted (probably on Thursday, 30 November) will mark the end of the current story, "Problems and Solutions". I am planning the next one, but it may not begin before the new year. While still concerning the Hollisters, this will be sf/fantasy, as it will involve the future. I hope it won't prove a disaster.

Thanks again

You guys are fast! Thanks to the three of you who caught my typo at the end of Chap. 31.

I know many of my readers are aware of the Uluru meeting of several months ago and the ensuing Report to Mr. Turnbull, the PM. I believe his (appalling) response is less well known. Yesterday' "First Dog on the Moon" was perfect.

I'm quite overwhelmed by the response to my previous posting. I received over 50 notes in under 24 hours and several more every day.

I'll be posting chapter 30 today (Thursday) and will then embark on the future.

For those of you who expressed worry: Rachel will not suffer a miscarriage.
