By whatever road you have arrived at this blog...you are warmly welcomed. A couple of years ago a few of us produced a little magazine called 'Dew of Hermon', the title taken from a line in Psalm 133. The writer of that ancient song enthused about how good it is when people live together in unity,and compares it poetically to the dew of Hermon descending upon the mountains of Zion. In that spirit it is hoped these scribblings will be more refreshing mountain dew, than obscurantist valley fog...a friendly hitching post where tired pilgrims can stay awhile and leave refreshed and refuelled ! Lofty sounding aims...but we also want to have fun and avoid bullshit, the pilgrims way is already too richly spread with that commodity by cant and platitude. So join the motley crew of the good ship Ragamuffin, and lets see what oceans we will cross and what monsters we will meet out there in the Deep....we will face them together linked by the pilgrims rule and bound by invisible ties.
