Open your mind to new experiences, particularly to the study of other people. Nothing that happens to a writer – however happy, however tragic – is wasted. – P.D. James

The Literary Drover No. 2374

Previously I mentioned that I took a short break from this effort to plan for the next phase of a project now eight months old.

The next phase includes the war now underway against independent booksellers around the world.

The need to support independent booksellers around the world grows each day. Ensure their existence by purchasing books in person or online from independent booksellers in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Reference to the Golden Eagle has brought additional interest to The Jhon Collector Mysteries. Mention of personal experience has resulted in, conservatively, a deluge of communications from people wanting to know more.

You ask, I do:

The older a Golden Eagle the earlier they are likely to migrate from winter territories to warmer climates. They may migrate as early as February in many circumstances, although I have seen adult female Golden Eagles return to nesting sites as early as mid-December. The disadvantage to this comes of colder weather and fewer thermal currents the raptors can use for flying. The reason for this seems to be the need to beat competitors to breeding territories. Such efforts force the eagle to use less efficient air current that reflect off mountains, slowing them down. But the reason given makes sense – they want to reach their territory by a certain time and they will sacrifice energy expenditure to do so.
