The Merrell walking/hiking shoes I bought fit my feet better than the Vasque walking/hiking shoes that I've walked in for several pilgrimages. I've also bought a flash light with a strap around my head, and I believe have everything else that is needed.
I am ready to hang out in the desert, to sleep long hours under the stars, to see sites that I'vve not seen before.
The pilgrimage at home continues to be a challenge as well: trying to finish some parts of a new book "Beyond Accessibility," and the proposal for "Divinity." And I continue to find out interest in the School of the Pilgrim with artists I visited this past weekend.
Salaam and shalom,
