The Wayless Way, where the Sons of God lose themselves and, at the same time, find themselves.Meister Eckhart Stand at the crossroads and look; Ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.Jeremiah 6:16 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.Psalm 84:5
A retired Army wife, with three kids out creating their own lives, and SEVEN granddaughters, I love the good life, which to me is fresh food, fine bourbon, dear friends, stimulating conversation about all things spiritual and the life beyond the physical world. Put me in Barnes and Noble with a good cup of coffee and you may never see me again! Or set me on a walking trail and I am content.
I learned something today: lesson #2, there is no "easy day" on the camino. Just because the way doesn't go way up or down, has nothing to do with the smoothness of the path! I experienced many kindnesses along the way and begin to see familiar faces over and over. Helga shared her bocadilla with me when there was no open bar for a meal. A Spanish man talked an official into stamping my credentiale, even though they were closed. I was even able to be a "camino angel" when I found a wallet on the path and was able to return it to a grateful bicyclist. You should have seen his happy face! The photo is of a picturesque ancient bridge leading to a church which has cared for peregrinos for many centuries. It is so peaceful here in the courtyard.
