"Exit, pursued by a bear."

Yes, I do. (Need to update my blog.)

A friend is picking me up in ten minutes to go see Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale on stage. It's supposed to be a beautiful day, and I'm not all that keen on live theater, so I was feeling grumbly about having agreed to go, even though it's a free ticket.

But just now I looked up the play online and discovered it is the one with the famous stage direction, "Exit, pursued by bear," and now I have something to look forward to:
What will the bear look like?

And afterward I will go for a long walk.
Seven weeks to go until the Camino. I've been exercising indoors--it's been too icy to walk outside much--but now it's warm and the sidewalk is fairly clear--so I can begin to build up some callouses on my feet. In case I have to run away from bears.

I had a friend who walked across the United States, along US Route 30, the Lincoln Highway. I can't remember how many pairs of runners she wore out, but she had quite the adventure.

Here's hoping your journey is a good adventure, Fresca. Will you blog during your walk?

Well, even if you're not too keen on live theater, you've got to see Trek in the Park . . . "Exit, pursued by a Gorn"

CROW: Oooh... now I want to walk across the USA!

Nope. The Camino will not be electronified. That's one of the things about it I'm looking forward to!

MARZ: Ohgodyes!
Next year in Oregon!
