PS I'm told that the FFRP topoguide for the Paris-Tours sections of the GR655, originally scheduled for this year, will now not be ready until next year at the earliest, 'due to problems coordinating the regions concerned'.

Hola Gareth,
Reading your post on the 'Fear' thread, I wonder if the Whiz Kids you raised money for on your very long walk know how much you suffered for them? You did good. Nobody can take that away from you.
Welcome back 'home' peregrino!

I'll be the first to buy the book!

My favourite Catholic Buddhist and spiritual writer is Thomas Merton who claimed to also be a Hindu! He regularly used the words God, Krishna, and Tao interchangeably!

Hi
I have read in old posts from 2008 that the problem of this route "turinensis"is that it goes often through normal roads.
Does anybody knows whether it has changed?. I would like to avoid roads as much as possible.

Knowing the works of Thomas Merton, as many men do

... and women.

A few years ago I joined the Merton Institute to receive their weekly reflections. Members of the Merton Institute’s Contemplative Community were recently asked to submit our favourite Merton quotes which have been published on the Institute website. A number of my favourites, and many others, have been published in a document entitled, "The Spirit of Merton's Voice"> Most of mine relate to pilgrimage.

To read about Merton's claims to being a Hindu - just Google the words!
