Read from June 30 to July 15, 2012 — I own a copy

In spring 2009, I walked the Way (The Camino, a pilgrimage from Roncesvalles to Santiago de Compostella - about 1000 kilometers in about 40 days - 5 mountain ranges.) I scattered my son's ashes along the way. This was a pilgrimage of gratitude for me. In the fall Martin Sheen and Emilio Estavez made their film ("The Way")about the Camino. The story is about a father who finds himself unexpectedly walking the camino and as he walks, he comes to terms with his son's life choices. He scatters the sons' ashes along the way. The book contains background on the film - it is not really about the film, but is the memoir of a father and son. But, of course I bought the boo and enjoyed the parts about the making of the film.

Sasha I'm so sorry for you. I don't even know what else to say.
