David Robbins: Walking in Camino wonderland . . . but only in my dreams

First, I showed her a promotional brochure that came with one of the papers this week. "Look," I said, "mom and me did this walk a few years ago. Wouldn't it be nice if we all did it again as a family?"

The word "walk" now divides our household: the new dog goes into a fit of buck-lepping whenever it is uttered, while my daughter knits her brows and flounces off to play with something pink.
