Back in Business

This picture is from the Summer and has nothing to do with the day´s blog below, but somehow it seems to encapsulate life here.

Snow now in Moratinos these last few days. Only a dusting here. Along with it, a handful of pilgrims. Thursday, Jack DeGroot, a Dutchman with a taste for poetry in general and Lorca in particular, stopped by. He has written a book entitled, Intertextuality Through Obscurity: The Poetry of Frederico Garcia Lorca and Luis de Gongora.
But he is a nice man.

Intertextuality Through Obscurity might be a good new name for this blog, though.

Yesterday evening, two tired young ladies arrived. They had walked from Carrion and hed expected to stay in Terradillos, but found the refuge still closed for Christmas. Our place was a nice surprise. One pilg is from Norway, one from Korea. It all makes a nice break in a bleak midwinter.

A headline from Yahoo this morning:
Tom Cruise on death of Travolta´s son: ¨It´s horrific.¨
Well, thanks for that, Tom. I wasn´t sure what to make of it myself.

I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
