Eric's tour was so engrossing that I completely failed to let you know what
it was like!  A month on tour, that's hardly time to see anything, right?
So many new foods to try.  I can say though that Kshatriya was really
interesting. Words fail me - really, you should go there!  I was very much
looking forward to what the Tixie came up with this year and really
enjoyed it.

My passport did need updating though as I got married in January and
February and decided I would change my name.  For the tixie's records, my
new surname is Long.  My birthday hasn't changed though.

Eric - I hope you've now well and truly recovered from your surgery.

[In real life things got in the way, I ended up with a mental block on
replying, it became one of those things, and sadly I've not been near the
list since until today.  But I miss you all, so.  Also, I see there's a new
Penric novella so what a time to come back!]

Prayer, he suspected as he hoisted himself up and turned for the door, was
putting one foot in front of the other.  Moving all the same.
