Three quick days

2020-02-06T00:07:49-05:00By |Uncategorized|0 Comments

I seem to be fighting with technology again. Prepared my blog postings for the last three days and then lost it in space.

Preparing to walk the Camino – again!

2020-02-06T00:07:50-05:00By |Uncategorized|0 Comments

In less than two months, at the beginning of April, I will be walking the Camino for my third time. This is old hat for me, or so you might think. The variation this time is that I am walking an unfamiliar route from Seville. I will admit to feeling apprehensive and, as I mentioned in my last post, [...]
