A Lot of Talk About the Walk

I spent quite a while on the phone with a journalist from Alberta asking for some accounts of my "Tales From Trails."  Once the interview was over, I was reminded how I actually needed to put on my pair of sneakers and go for my daily score—not chore.

But first I made that commitment to Victor—an hour of peering through and discussing the intro to the Gita.  It came rather last minute, but Perin, the coordinator for the Tuesday Sangha, had also booked me to lead the discussion on Chapter Four of the same book. Victor agreed to plug into that already established Sangha program, and so an interactive form of spiritual talk rolled out.

Midway through, who should walk in but friend Michael Oesch, a cross-Canada walker himself.  He sat in with us.  I gave an intro about Michael to the group, and he stayed right there with us, cross-legged and sharing some of his own wisdom accrued from his trail experience. Michael and I go back a bit.  He's also a filmmaker who featured myself along with some other walkers in his documentary, "Walking: The Wisdom of the Road," which is to be presented at Govinda's Restaurant on the evening of September 14th.

Tickets are for sale for this event which includes a great dinner for $29.00.  I'll be speaking, Michael's film will be screened, and a classic slide guitarist, Rhitom Sarkar, will provide music.  It will be dandy.

May the Source be with you!
