50-Year Mercy Reunion

Fifty years since 1961...having not gone back to my high school in all that time, it seemed right to go this year. And it was. I greatly enjoyed seeing everyone and hearing what they have been up to. It was also nice to be back in the building. The school is going strong.

More photos are here. I fermented more about it on our Random Ferments blog

Camino Presentation and Class

We had great fun doing a presentation about the Camino for the Prime Time Institute on Thursday. About 30 attended. The audience was wonderfully interactive, full of questions and comments. We talked about the "What", the "How", and the "Why" of walking the Camino...the historical and cultural path, the practical path, and the inner path. 
I enjoy talking about the legends related to the Camino and its historical perspective. But I must admit that the "how to" parts are the most fun for me. Our show-and-tell was a hit. We brought our backpacks and sticks for people to try out. We brought our packing lists and examples of all our gear.
Now we are looking forward to the short-course we will teach for the Community Education program at Santa Fe College on three Tuesdays in November...the 8th, 15th, and 29th. In these we will have time to expand the how-to information as well as the discussions of the historical and inner paths of the Camino experience.
If you are interested in taking the course, it will open for registration October 12 through the College's Community Education website The class is listed in the "Special Interests" category and costs $24 for all three classes. It requires at least 10 to run.
