Haloes are for Show-Offs: revised second edition
Richard Holeman, author
"He travels fastest who travels alone." In my time on the road, I came to believe so much in that wise old idiom that it became the core of my code. I didn’t pair up with other tramps, except a few times in the earliest days of my travels. "Carry no money belt, no bag, no shoes; and greet no one on the way." That one's from the Bible and it's good advice. I kept to myself as much as I could, on the road and in the fields and forests where I camped, but when I woke one morning to find a fragile and mysterious girl sitting quietly beside my smoldering fire, I broke my code and accompanied her on her long road home. It was a journey between two worlds that would call into question both my doubt and faith as I crossed the country with a girl in search of a homecoming...and someone to stand witness to it.
