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.
This little town is probably not on many maps, but tomorrow I should pass through Logrono, and a hundred miles or so along my journey. It has been gorgeous walking. The road was mostly smooth and winding through verdant fields of wheat and barley as well as endless vineyards and olive groves. But it has been a really sad day for me as I had to make the decision to leave my camino friend and walking companion in Los Arcos. As I was becoming stronger each day, it was becoming more difficult for her. She had a very heavy pack which I encouraged her to lighten by sending things home. We have had a few short walking days already, and Nora felt she had to stop after only 14 km. She felt she had to be careful of her heart. I had to decide if I should stay with her as she encouraged me to go on. I knew if I were to have any hope of reaching my goal in the timeframe I have, I had to move on. I did so with a heavy heart. I wish I had a photo of her to share with you, but they are all on the camera. I forget to get out the Blackberry at the important moments! So, again the camino is like life. People come and go, and we must value the moments we have with them.
