    Health, Heights, and a Horrid Horseman.

    The large Indian doctor sat across his desk from me looking at the results. “A blood pressure reading of 220 over 110,” he said at last, looking over his glasses at me. “You, Mr Carey, are a stroke waiting to happen.” A friend had come to welcome me home from Spain. She was also looking for a...

    Dear Deer....Mishap on the Meseta.

    I was now into the Meseta proper. I’d just come over a hilltop and was dropping into a valley. The Camino ran down the slope, then along the center of the valley floor. It was autumn.

My feet went out from under me and down I crashed. I sprawled, dizzy and disorientated, freezing in the mist and lashing...

    A Gentle Mugging....Morality on the Mountain

    It was coming. Inexorably. Like a big headed snake, with a tail that grew progressively longer. There was no escape. It wound it's way around the room towards me. Not that it worried me. I'd been here before. Michelle, and her sons Jefferson and Lazarus, they'd have to stand before me, state...
