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.
We walked a short day and arrived in Najera about noon. This is quite a large town on a river and it seemed everyone was out for a Sunday stroll along the banks, lying in the shade or having cafe con leche at tables outside the bars. Sorry to call them bars because that has a certain connotation in America that is not quite right here. A bar is where you go for a glass of wine or beer, but also for coffee or a juice drink, or to eat a light meal. It is the meeting place of a town, a place to sit and talk for a long while.
