  1. Your book arrived last night! I’m trying desperately NOT to read it until I finish grading this enormous stack of papers….but I can’t wait!

    Just finished your book; my local Borders in Long Beach, CA, had about six copies. I wondered if you have read Fumbling: A Journey of Love, Adventure, and Renewal on the Camino de Santiago. The subtitles are similar.

  3. Thanks! I’ve not heard of that book — the subtitles do sound almost the same.

  4. Thanks, Lara — hope you love it! (And good luck with grading those papers!)
