Feb 2010, raced to Ben Ledi, packed light and walked hard. Cramponing up steep icy snow, blushed orange by the early sun, to reach the top by 9am. A few minutes out of the bitter wind behind the cairn then bounded home for a lunchtime appointment in Edinburgh. Pure exhilaration won from a humdrum weekend.

I had a lovely holiday cottage in the woods on a Welsh hillside. I went for a walk with my 6 year old son, and couldn't find my way back. I was dressed inadequately, because it started to rain even though it was August. It was also starting to get dark. Nothing by logging trees in sight. My little boy asking repeatedly if we could go back now. Nothing but an open logging area, a logging road I went the wrong way down and the terrible feeling this was how people died of exposure only half a mile or under from safety. What if I started getting cold and did something stupid. We'd be dead.

The book. Apprehension. Years. Job. Boredom. Exasperation. Travel. Peace. Confidence. Kyoto.

A life. Soji. Ukemi. Hajimegeiko. Seiza. Shinsa. Eikaiwa. Nomihodai.

Pain. Frustration. Insight. Fun.

The giant beggar advanced with menacing expression. 'Spare some change?' Almost a command.

I declined: 'More broke than you old boy!'

'Out of my way!'

I thought 'He needs a good kicking, but it's me who'll get it.'

Then I saw: the angry man carried a ......Bible!

"Put a lid on it dustbin gob!", I quipped at the abusive gorilla and his gang. Thus it began - fists and boots the extra course after my birthday meal. First steps on the road to Nidan and a season ticket to A&E - your book revived memories and smiles.

Niger. Despite warnings of indiscriminate kidnappings, I’m strolling the livestock market at Agadez, where Westerners are a rarity and the focus of stolen distrustful glances. Ambiance electrified by loudspeaker on a marauding pickup....concerned enquiries reveal the crowd is being incited to 'Change your life, buy an Orange mobile phone!'

I am asleep and dreaming again. I tend do this a lot after I have been going backward in my life . I am always remembering my childhood days in Jinja Uganda where I am from. Those were the good old days and I miss them dearly and In my dream,I am always there playing with people whom I haven't seen for forty years or so. As clear as daylight those faces and houses. Then bump, I'm back to reality. Good while it lasted .!

I built an igloo on the fjord ice. Guests for tea. Like being in a silent green jewel. Once heard a soft shush outside; crawled out (like being born?); six Inuit children were standing in a line before me. In caribou bed, heard tidal ice creaking inches under my ear.

Song Shan:
In the moonlight I scampered, inexhaustible pitter-patter over the stoneways. Part down the other side, nuns in a small temple were too scared of 'mogui - me". I returned to the Taoist Temple at the summit and asked sanctuary, The abbess welcomed me, I slept in a god room. I became feng shui happy.

Via Ferrata in the Italian Dolomites. Huge, airy walls and dramatic exposure. A two day circumambulation of the Cortina group's central hub, with every turn opening onto a new vista. Sitting in the looming presence of one vast cliff, hearing the boom and crackle of rockfalls as the limestone warms.

38 men, 4 teenagers (Journeymen), 18 boys walked into woods for a Rites of Passage Adventure. 38 initiators of boys, 22 Journeymen walked out. We told the truth, were authentic, asked 'what kind of man will you be' explored ourselves with unconditional positive regard. 'Best weekend of my life'.

The story started when we left our home near the sea. We launched our inflatable canoes through the nearby harbour. As we paddled out, my boat seemed deflated.That caused us to take my canoe back.Then we were wrecked on the shore by colossal waves. Afterwards we trudged home.

"I went to the beach to look for driftwood. The sea was pounding the beach. At first I thought it was an old fishing rod but then I saw it was almost new. It had been washed off a boat. It was very rough but I waded into the sea. I got knocked down by a wave but I got it. Lucky me!"
