E-mail advertising "A guided pilgrimage along the Royal Route, through some of London's sacred places, churches, gardens, temples, hills, standing stones and holy wells" showed up in my inbox yesterday. Another one shows up this morning. Okay, what is this? I'm not going to London, and something like this is bound to be pricey, so no, I'm not interested. But then I notice it's from Jason Goodwin, and I remember now that he wrote a couple of books I really enjoyed. I enjoyed them so much I signed up on his mailing list to keep up with what he was doing. That was years ago, but I heard nothing till now.
