I never thought a character I met in a book would have such a profound impact on my life, but don Juan sure has.

Yup. The ‘don Juan’ that author Carlos Castaneda wrote about many years ago — that amazingly charismatic personage that took young Carlos on as his ‘apprentice’; a young and arrogant student who had absolutely no idea that he was about to embark upon a labor of love that turned into such a mind-boggling adventure that it would consume him for decades.
