My heartfelt thanks to those of you who've written over the past week. I truly appreciate all the comments.

I've begun writing again; I expect to post a chapter by Friday, 23 June.

Problems ...

I've rather liked the last 2-3 chapters. However, the scores have fallen. As a result, I've decided to re-think where the story is going. I'm revising all of "University," so I've got time to think while I execute the revision. I'm not looking for advice, but I may have used up Patrick and Rachel.

Anyway, there won't be another chapter for at least a week.

Walkabout is nearing its (logical) conclusion. I have two short stories in the works. One concerning Rachel's dissertation; the other concerning Patrick's future. Next year I will be eighty [!]. I hope to continue writing.

Grahame Webb is a biologist who has written at great length about crocodiles in general and the Australian salt water crocodile (Crocodylus porosus). Over 30 years ago he wrote a novel combining reptilian menace and Aboriginal Dreaming. An old friend of mine in Oxford (UK) has sent me a paperback reprint just published. NUMUNWARI was reprinted by Edward Everett Root Publishing Co., Ltd., Brighton, Sussex BN1 1BN, England. ISBN 978-1-911454-37-3. (I get no commission and have never met Prof. Webb.)

Sorry. Instead of a chapter, I posted the beginning of a different chapter. I was careless, sloppy, etc.

Thanks to those of you who were kind enough to write.
