Yes, the long-awaited print edition of my book: “My Camino Walk – A Way to Healing” (IslandCatEditions) is out and will be available for order either through Amazon or from me direct. Just a temporary glitch is that Amazon want to ensure that I am the author. I can vouch for that although there were times during the writing where  I feel I had been”channeled.” Is that what inspiration is about? However, Amazon assures me that you will be able to order the print- book within the next 24 hours. Thank you, Amazon! I also hope to have some copies with me this Saturday. Meanwhile, you can still order the eBook version through Kindle, Kobo or iTunes.

More exciting news: I will be presenting, Saturday 28th October,  at the twice-yearly “All things Camino” meeting at Beach United Church, 140 Wineva Avenue. This is an all-day meeting beginning at 9.00 a.m. Registration is from 8.30 a.m. onwards. If you are interested in walking the Camino and want to know more about it, then this is the event you need to attend. The fee for the day is $15.00. I will be speaking at about 9.30 a.m. for just under an hour on my experiences this past April of walking the Via de la Plata from Seville to Santiago de Compostela. I might even share the lessons learned from this journey or, at least, the lessons I hope I’ve learned. Sometimes I think I’m a slow learner and don’t always absorb the obvious.

Last month I was visited by Pepe here on a flying visit to Toronto. He was one of the key characters I met on my walking of my first Camino in 2010 – “siempre en mi corazón”  Read my story to learn more about this charismatic manI  am glad we have reconnected in person. We later had dinner in Niagara on the Lake.

I’ll be posting extracts from “My Camino Walk – A Way to Healing” in the weeks to come.
