For the past 30 years, Dr. Adriel Clark Gray has treated a growing circle of friends to his insights and reflections on life, nature, the human condition, the changing seasons, the earth's great nationalities . . . and whatever else caught his lively imagination.

He has traveled to many parts of the world in his work for the Air Force, the Peace Corps, the Red Cross, and other organizations. His memoir, Pondering My Passage, includes many of his favorite experiences. A sequel, Pondering Another Passage, chronicles his recent round-the-world tour as a lone passenger aboard a freighter bound for exotic ports.

This web site holds a delightful sampling of A.C.Gray's writing, drawn from his open letters to friends around the world. Most of this material was written at Arbreux, his beloved retreat in the Shenandoah Mountains north of Harrisonburg, Virginia. . . and thus the title of this collection:
